TOPIC: Trying to Find Custom 3D Chrome Lettering

Trying to Find Custom 3D Chrome Lettering 8 years 4 months ago #75047

The rear badges had all been removed by the previous owner.

I\'ve bought an oem-looking \'PT Cruiser\' badge and want to insert the letters \'Franken\' in a spooky, blood drippy, horror themed font so that the rear badge reads: PT FrankenCruiser :laughing8:

I found a website months ago and bookmarked the page, but my laptop long since shuffled of it\'s mortal coil (someone spilt a whole lotta scotch\'n\'coke on it :-w ) and I cannot, for the life of me, find it again. Have spent hours trawling the web - and nothing.

So does anyone know where to find self-adhesive 3D Chrome lettering in *very* particular fonts?

I\'m guessing others in our little community have done similar things, i.e. christened their PT\'s and made it official with chrome :)

Try a local signwriter or if you know an airbrush fella.
My airbrush fella has machines that can make almost any font that is in the program that he uses for his business.
Worth starting there if you know someone who does it.

Cheers, but I\'m really after 3D Chrome lettering to fit in with the standard \'PT Cruiser\' badge.

I will be looking for some airbrushing to be done on the sides, just behind the front wheel arches, at some stage. I want it to look like there are little bats flying out from under the engine bay. :)

Cheers Chubby, I\'ve trawled ebay, but a plain font for the \'Franken\' bit won\'t cut it. The frustrating part is, I found it once, and can\'t find it again :cussing:

When I gets stuck on a crazy idea, I won\'t budge for nuthin\'!

A good example of that was when my last crappy car died (finally!) and I decided I was gunna get a PT Cruiser (always liked the look of them, they kinda look like the love-child of a hotrod and a hearse). I decided it had to be a post 2006, purple, manual, with less than 80,000 K\'s on the clock.

After almost 4 months of searching, and test driving an automatic, the only concession I was willing to make was the colour. And I had to get it sent over from the other side of the country.

Totally worth it! B)

I\'ve made an enquiry with Creative Works www.creativeworks.com.au for:
- the bats design behind the front wheel arches,
- PT FrankenCruiser in chrome, and
- a clear coat.

I\'ll report back on how it goes! :woohoo:
