    Mobil 1 reproduction plaques, interest?

    TM community,

    After seeing some interest in the for sale threads, I am looking to see if there is interest in doing Mobil 1 reproduction plaques.

    For starters, I would need a few things if this becomes a "go". I would need:

    1.) Actual size of all versions (there were multiple versions, correct?). I would prefer to measure this myself with an original (see #3) to make it as exact as possible.

    2.) If the versions had square or round corners.

    3.) An original of each style to work with (will be returned).

    Once I get this, I can offer "custom versions" for any vehicle (including adding your numbered car's number, for example).

    This is where I would like some input. The originals were screen printed onto a piece of metal. Getting the metal is no problem (see pictures below). But the screen printing will not make sense unless there are at least (100) of each design, since there are 3 colors (and thus, 3 screens needed). I can also make a digitally printed decal onto clear vinyl, and mount it onto the metal, trimmed. Since most clear vinyl is "glossy", I would go the route of using a matte clear vinyl, to allow the metal to show and not be "overpowered" by a glossy vinyl. In my opinion, this would look "show quality", and also allow me to make them in small batches to accommodate custom requests as well as the original ones. They would also come with micro-thin 3M VHB taped backs for mounting.

    So, what do you think? Is this something that is wanted? What would you be willing to pay? I know what my raw costs would be, just wondering what the demand is. I saw one recently go on Ebay for almost $9, that was about 40% missing the information (i.e., worn out).

    If I get enough positive feedback, I will setup a second thread where payment in advance (along with the type you want) can be arranged. This would only be once all 3 of the above items are acquired and I am ready to actually "make them".

    Below is the 2 types of metal I can offer, one is more "brushed" than the other...to those that have them, which is closer to the original? (note: the brushed looks MORE brushed than the picture, I will take pictures of the actual pieces later on).

    Feedback?

    Assuming the price is right, as in not out of line, I'd be down for two of the 86, and 87 GLHS versions.

    The decal although not 100% concours, is better than nothing if you aren't going to screen print. Could be interested in a custom one for my SRT-4 ACR, so I say go for it.

    Also, not many people on here have these, but the Commemorative Edition SRT-4's number plaques where a screen print design onto metal, any way you could reproduce that as well in either decal or screen print?

    Occasionally he breaks out a few of them and brings them to events.

    Where were these mounted? I thought I've seen some mounted on the Valve covers? If so would the vinyl sticker hold up to the heat?

    Interesting. When I bought SL #127 back in '99 it also had a plaque for a GLHS.

    Perhaps it was a mistake made at the Shelby facility?
