Hood badge for a pedal car

Recommended Posts

Been doing a lot of plating lately as its rather warm down in the desert for detecting. Here is a hood badge for a J 40 pedal car.

Had to do some major work on it as it was missing half a wing and pitted pretty bad.

Did a V splice with copper as I figured a butt joint would be too weak when he puts a screw in it to hold it to the radiator.

Lots of copper/shaping and sanding..................but, it came out pretty good :)
Next up is a 41 LaSalle hood ornament  This one is ugly!

Yeah, that's one heck of a nice job there Tom.

The pics really tell the story of the knowledge and skills it takes to do something like that.

Thanks guys.... This was a little bit of a pain as nothing was symmetrical on it.   It was just stamped out/plated and stuck on the pedal car.

 Fortunately the guy I do pedal car parts for realizes this and knows about it.

I still try to make them butt a$$ perfect though :)

Just finished up a 53 Buick hood ornament and will post some pics of it.

Tom you do beautiful work. :D

I was down at Tom's house today bumming lathe time and had a chance to see some of the other stuff he is working on. Perfect glossy shine that looks like liquid. Gorgeous stuff!!!  That winged lady one was something else :worship:
