Reply to "Porsche Badge Source?"

Regarding the script over the license plate ( "Porsche"  over "1600 Super").

Mine were both mounted with the studs that were molded onto the script but one of the studs on the "1600 Super" script broke off---vibration, I guess.   I ordered an new one and it turned out to be a different finish that the first one on the car.  It was brighter and very "brassy" looking while my original "Porsche" one was a  more subdued gold tone --I guess from 10 years of polishing, or maybe it has always been like it is now ---so the replacement I got didn't match the old one.  Be sure both your scripts match as far as finish.  I like my original ones' finish much better than that brassy one I received..

I didn't want the stud mounting again because I had replaced it twice and didn't trust it so I simply glued it back on with Gorilla Glue using a very small amount so that none came out from under the script when I pressed it against the car.  I was hesitant to use this approach but went ahead and it look just great  and both scripts finish matches!  I lucked out and got the "1600" script absolutely level just like the top one but it would have been easy to screw it up and end up with it slanted---be careful!

On the Meister Schaffen badge---some that are sold are plastic---horrors!  Be sure you get the  metal ones!  (Right, Tom Blankenship?)

If anyone can use a brassy "1600 Super" scrpt with the studs cut off  (by me) you are welcome to it.

--Hope this helps someone out there!
