Who has the CNC mill? I will right the code to make a set of dies we could just use in a hydraulic press on stock bezels. This should not be all that hard to make. It is just stamped block letters.

I have a friend who works at a small machine shop, all they do is CNC stuff. I will ask if he's got enough pull to get it done.

John Pardi in Placerville makes a fiberglass reproduction that is indistinguishable from the real thing until you touch it. Pretty nice!

Gozzard in Canada also makes a high quality fiberglass reproduction.

i've seen john pardi's; they look really nice and he's a great guy. just somebody else you'll meet at the 45 run, since his daily driver for the last 10+ years is a 45 shorty.
PS: he also makes fiberglass lids for them!;)

Perfect,
Rugburn was looking for closeup pics of the letters so that he could reproduce them easily.

Thanks Butch!
