Rear bumper stainless letters
#1
Good afternoon,

As the car is off the road due to the clutch hydraulics, I'm looking around her for other jobs to sort.

Anyway, the stainless letters have been removed form the logo in the back bumper because one fell off whilst cleaning.  This is leading to my question.

I have a friend who runs his own business cutting shapes from sheet material (plastics and the like, not metal) and I have asked him to cut me some shaped double sided adhesive backing for the aforementioned Delorean stainless letters from the back bumper.  To do so, he needs either a dxf file or scaled pdf file of the letters!!

Can anyone help me?  I have looked online but can't find anything.

If we can get the right material, he could make them available for purchase!!!!!!!!

Would anyone be interested in buying them?

Thanks.

Nice plan, but it's been done by various venders already.  For £25, they're cheap enough to purchase already:

If you ask "bandit" nicely enough on the forum, he'll even supply you with one letter at a time for a nominal fee, if you just need to replace one missing letter.  Wink

Maybe I didn't explain properly.  I'm not making the letters, I'm looking to make a proper profiled sheet adhesive that will stick the letters on properly. Big Grin

Good old general purpose black silicone sealant from Wickes. 6.5yrs stuck on and no signs of quitting.

Same goes for outer weather stripping around the doors and the stainless letters on the doorsills.
