SPRING SPECIAL! - Reduced Pricing on "Filled" Custom Refinished Hood Crests

Over the past few years my daughter and I have enjoyed the support of the membership here in regard to the custom crests and insignia we refinish.

A few years ago we started experimenting with a proprietary Marine Resin in order to make “filled” refinished pieces. We chose this particular material as it was perfect for use on the front end or wheel cap of a Porsche. It’s highly resistant to water, saltwater, UV exposure, impact and won’t fade, chip or crack over time as does the material in factory pieces. The downside to using this material was that it’s very labor intensive to create a finished “jewelry quality” piece. Each piece required approximately 8-10 hours of hand sanding and polishing (the final wet sanding is done with a 5000 grit 3M Trizact pad) and consequently we priced the crests at $399.99 each. For those of you who are new to our work please note that this is a part time “hobby business” and not our “day jobs”. Overall we’ve refinished very few of these pieces although we’re MORE than pleased with the results.

Well ……. over time we’ve learned quite a bit about working with this material. And practice makes perfect. We’ve developed expertise and techniques that reduce the time required to complete a finished filled piece. Accordingly we’re able to SIGNIFICANTLY reduce the cost. We’re offering two refinished filled pieces as this year’s Spring Special.

The first option is a black resin and nickel plate “partially filled” refinished crest. Available in polished or brushed nickel plate utilizing a “newer” style crest (with outlined PORSCHE lettering) or “older” style (with solid lettering). The price is $249.99 shipped within the US with a new crest gasket and retainers. Here’s a pic of the prototype piece…a “new” style crest with a polished nickel finish:



The second option is a filled version of the “American Flag” style piece we’ve been refinishing for a few years utilizing automotive enamel. As with the black and silver option above we’re offering these in brushed or polished nickel plate and your choice of an “old” or “new” crest. We also offer the option of filling the outlined PORSCHE lettering with white resin on a “new” style piece at no additional cost. The price is $299.99 shipped in the US with a crest gasket and retainers. Here’s a few pics of the prototypes (please note that the blue resin is a darker “navy blue” than it appears in the pics:





Please note however that we still create each custom piece one at a time…..by hand….to your order. We don’t have a bank of machinery knocking these pieces out one after another nor do we have “in stock” refinished pieces lying around waiting to ship. We only refinish OEM Porsche pieces….we don’t refinish knockoff pieces shipped to us via a container from China. And we don’t start creating your custom order until you custom order it!

The Spring Special is approximately 30% off the previous pricing. If you’re interested in ordering please contact us via PM here or via email: porschecrests@gmail.com .

We still refinish custom pieces, wheel centers and rear model insignia utilizing Cerakote, Automotive Enamel to your order. Please view our online album of previously refinished pieces on photobucket.com here: Refinished Porsche Hood Crests Photos by jtyurg | Photobucket

Thank you to the members here for the welcome response we've received to our "Spring Special" filled crests! Although more labor intensive and expensive than our previous specials they're considerably reduced in price through April 30th.

We're still actively refinishing other crests and insignia as well. The ability to offer a filled "American Flag" motif crest generated an order for a matched set (hood crest, steering wheel crest and center cap crests for the wheels). I thought I'd post pics of the work in progress.

Here's the completed hood crest with the steering wheel crest still in progress (awaiting additional resin fill, wet sanding, polishing and final plating):



And here's the wheel center cap crests in various stages of refinishing, from L to R - Original worn cap, media blasted crest, partially filled crest awaiting additional resin fill, wet sanding, polishing and plating:



If you're interested in a "Spring Special" or another custom piece for your Porsche contact us via PM here or via email: porschecrests@gmail.com

Besides the filled pieces we're offering during our "Spring Special" we're also ready and willing to refinish custom pieces for fellow Porsche owners and enthusiasts. Here's a matched set that we sent out yesterday for a customer's 930 - A brushed nickel plate hood crest with satin black and anthracite metallic + refinished Fuchs caps with matching center crests:



Please have a look at our online album and see if there is something we can create that reflects the personality of both you and your Porsche!

BREAKING NEWS REGARDING THE "SPRING SPECIAL"!!

We've been able to source another quantity of "core" crests at a reasonable price so the special will be extended from April 1st through Memorial Day.

Secondly in response to requests from fellow Porsche owners and enthusiasts we're offering another color combination / option at the reduced price. A Black and White resin piece is now available in either polished or brushed nickel plate. Here's a pic of the prototype piece in polished nickel:



This color combination looks great on any color!

If you're interested in ordering one for both you and your Porsche please contact us via PM here or email: porschecrests@gmail.com

Cheers!

As you may already be aware we utilize genuine Porsche emblems as core pieces for refinishing. The current Porsche Factory pricing is $148.90 USD for the "older" style crest with solid PORSCHE lettering. Porsche's price for the "newer" style crest with outlined PORSCHE lettering is $164.51 USD.

In order for us to provide our fellow Porsche owners and enthusiasts with reasonable pricing on custom refinished pieces we're constantly searching to find sources for used crests. Refinishing or "repurposing" used pieces allows us to pass the savings on to you. We want the quality and appearance of our finished pieces to be "jaw dropping".............not the price!

Here's a quantity of used pieces we picked up this past week from a dismantler / vendor in the southern U.S. They may be ugly ducklings at the moment but stay tuned and watch as we transform them into stunning refinished custom crests!

Once again Mark White and his team at Accumoto Motorsport called and we answered. Mark wanted a refinished crest for their latest 911 project which is finished in Porsche GT Silver. We refinished a crest in black gloss marine resin and matching GT Silver paint topped with clear gloss resin. The exposed metal was given a low polish nickel plate finish which brilliantly highlights the center shield and the PORSCHE lettering at the top of the piece. We're honored that Mark and his team asked us to make a contribution to this project. Stay tuned for pics of our crest on their stunning project 911!



If you're a hardcore Porsche aficionado and haven't seen their work go to Accumoto Motorsport and see true Porsche purists at work.!

Here's another unique "Summer Special" that went out to Switzerland this week. The request was for a refinished polished nickel plate piece incorporating the colors in the Italian Flag. Here's the result:





Perhaps we will need to refinish a Ferrari Nose Emblem in the German National colors to keep everything in Balance

A custom crest that combines your personality with that of your Porsche is limited only by your imagination! If you're interested in creating a custom piece that incorporates those two elements please send us a PM here or contact us via email: porschecrests@gmail.com

Cheers!

We’ve had a busy summer both personally and professionally however we’re still actively refinishing custom crests for fellow Porsche owners and enthusiasts! The extended “Spring Special” which evolved into the “Summer Special” is still ON! Custom refinished “filled” hood crests are still $249.99 or $299.99 as described and pictured earlier in this thread. The price includes shipping within the US as well as a new Crest Gasket and Retainers. We’ve had a great response to this special and you’ve kept us quite busy creating great custom pieces for your PCars. “Combining your personality with that of your Porsche” is our goal and you’re only limited by your imagination.

We’ve parked a five page album of previously refinished custom pieces on photobucket.com here:

As evidenced by this pair of professionally personalized Porsche pieces prepared for postage:



Black and white to Cali and red and white to New Jersey. If you would like something similar, or completely different for the front end or wheel center of your Porsche please let us know!
