you could always suggest to the purchaser to use heat proof silicone - its the black stuff you can stick a cat to the sun with this stuff.Making the plates is pretty simple. My main issue is how to keep them fixed on. The glue on double sided sticky pads I supply with the regular covers wont withstand the heat and is likely to become unstuck resulting in the plate coming off risking loss of the plate but more importantly, damage to your engine/engine bay - nice big spinning pulleys at the front
I have a Nismo plaque on mine and am trying to source some of the same adhesive tape that is used on that.
As long as I can fix them securely, they will be made straight away.
If anyone knows any details of what could be used, please let me know asap.
me too if you can write it in carbon grey or something - need to get the text/font bang on tho - do you know the best way to remove the original one with out caausing any damage.well i will take one mate its worth a try!
this is the original - I'd like one the same reallyI simply started to remove mine with a screwed driver and gently eased it off. If you dont bend it too much, it can even be re-used.
I'll make a couple with the next batch then but its probably going to be a few weeks now as I've just recently restocked and have to fill a complete 2.5 x 1.5 metre sheet of metal for the laser cutting.
Any particular preferences as to what people want etched on the plates?? Obviously keep it fairly simple and bare in mind the etching is charge per minute which has to be included into the cost of the item.
Sticking them on initially is no issue. I'm more thinking on what will last and withstand the heat. Dont you think the arraldite might crack with the heat, expansion and vibration? Thats why I'm looking at ideas with a bit of flex.ide be interested in somthing a bit different, just sprayed covers an re used old one, a few well placed drops of araldite sticks them nicely,mmm what to have etched on it though,, will have to think on that one
