Custom Refinished Aston Martin Hood Emblems

We've been refinishing Genuine Porsche Hood Crests, Wheel Centers and Grille Badges for over six years as a "hobby business" enjoyed positive feedback on 6speed for the pieces we've refinished.

Recently we were contacted by a fellow 6speed member and Aston Martin owner asking if we could create custom AM emblems as well. That really piqued our interest as we've refinished a few emblems for other exotics to include Ferrari and Lamborghini and we're always interested in refinishing pieces for owners of other marques. Soooooooooooooooooooooo........

In order to give this idea a test drive we sourced a number of NOS and used AM Hood Emblems from the same network of dismantlers / salvage yards in the US and Europe that provide us with used "core" Porsche emblems:







Once they were in hand we media blasted the factory enamel fill and the chrome finish and took the emblem down to bare copper. Here's an emblem that has been "Half Blasted"and a completely stripped piece:







Once blasted down to bare metal the emblems are filled with our proprietary Marine Resin. Originally intended for use in boat construction as well as other applications it provides superior resistance to impact and UV damage as well as superior resistance to water, salt etc. and our Porsche customers have been more than pleased with the results. Once filled the emblems are wet sanded flat and even and finally polished and nickel plated. We refinished a few "demo" pieces to illustrate our capabilities:

Black Gloss Marine Resin "Wings" + Clear Marine Resin over an Anthracite Grey Metallic Lacquer center:




Clear Marine Resin over nickel plate "Wings" + a gloss black Marine Resin center:




And some additional pics of both:









We also have another demo emblem (in progress) being refinished in Gulf Orange + Gulf Blue:








The demo pieces are by no means the only options and we can refinish custom pieces in nearly every conceivable combination / color (to include matching factory colors). Much like the Factory WRC hood emblems pictured here personalizing your Aston Martin is limited only by your own creativity:






Pricing for pieces similar to the two completed demo pieces is $399.99 shipped (in the US, international @ $15 additional cost). Additional available options include nickel, gold and silver plate and (guaranteed) matching factory paint colors.

To order or discuss options please contact us via our Gmail address: [email protected] . You can also contact us by PM here however email is best. Time from receipt of payment to shipping will be 2-3 weeks.

Cheers: Jim
