So nice!

You may have mentioned it before, but what color is this truck?

This is just some of his amazing work,...
So I finally did something about it. I reached out to Brandon with an idea roughed out in AutoCAD (I'm an engineer, so I have it at my disposal) and sent it to him to see what he could do. Yesterday, he sent me a picture of the raw emblem, ready for paint. Check it out


I'm pretty excited to see these and get them on the truck. I'll use double sided automotive tape, at least until I'm ready to get the truck sanded down for the repair and repaint.

Those are awesome!

Stick them in the original Cheyenne location.
To me placement is critical.

That's the plan. The link is helpful, but since these aren't going to be drilled in, do you happen to know where I can find the measurements for where the studs are relative to the edges of the emblem? I don't have any emblems around that I can measure. I may have to just buy one.

Re: Knomadd '71 SWB C-10

I’ll look and see if I can find a Cheyenne emblem in my stash of parts.

Re: Knomadd '71 SWB C-10

Keith, Can you verify some dimensions for me? The distortion in the picture makes it a bit hard to tell what the dimensions are. I think I've got it, but I want to be sure.

It looks like the stud on the H is 13/16 from the left edge of the C. The stud on the 10 appears to be 11/16 from the right edge of the emblem. Both studs look like they are 11/16 from the bottom edge of the emblem. If that's correct, I think I can get it right on with the measurements from the link you provided. The engineer in me want's it to be EXACT, but I think it'll likely be within about 1/8" in any direction.

Thatís the dimensions I see also.
Iím sure there is some variation between emblems.
These are original emblems and not repop.
I can get you some pics with my dial calipers if that will help.

Re: Knomadd '71 SWB C-10

Well, I finally got them mounted. I'm really liking them. Definitely look at Rad Machining for any billet badges you may want for your ride. Brandon does some nice work. I kinda want to buy a second set (just in case), but I'm sure I'd lose them before I would need an extra. Check it out:

Pretty sweet! Your machinist did you a solid. Placement looks perfect and they really complement the rest of the truck.
