Aftermarket 3.0 grill badge source?

Has anybody ever seen a source for one of these badges:



that say "3.0" or "SC" for pre-SC 911 engine grills for those of us who have later engines in ours? I seem to remember seeing them at one time a few years back.

Pelican! I think it's a special order, they stock 3.2 and 3.6's I believe.

I've got plenty of 3.0's (can't seem to find a pic), just order from Pelican and I'll get one out to you.

Hey Jim: I got one of the 3.2's a couple of years ago, I think when you first did them? At any rate, do you stock 3.4's? I'm going to need one of them next spring!

I don't normally stock the 3.4, but by chance I happen to have two of them right now, likely from a cancelled order.

Yup, just order through Pelican. And no, nobody has requested a 4.0, but I do have a 5.8 that I'd let go real cheap!

Well, close but, no, that's the look when John Walker told me my 3.0 has Dilavar studs!

Well, my 911 was finally "liberated" yesterday after nearly 4 weeks in the bodyshop to paint the passenger door / rear quarter and front bumper / valance so I could finally put my new 3.0 grill badge on it!

I couldn't leave well enough alone, not that I don't think CNC machining marks aren't cool, they just aren't the look I was going for. I wanted my 3.0 badge to look exactly like the factory 2.7 so I took a jeweler's file to the machining marks, bead blasted it to remove the file marks and then put it on the buffing wheel with some jeweler's rouge to shine it up and round the corners a little. What do you think, look like it came from the factory?

I'd rather keep them guessing and under-guesstimating the car's performance... maybe a 1.8, 2.0, or even a 912 badge if I feel wild enough...

Yeah, drive around with a 1.8 in and on your 914 for a few years and you'll understand why there's a 3.0 prominently displayed on the back of my 911!

I put a 3.4 badge on Ruby when I made her bigger and faster.
