    Greetings brethren.


    I've recently bought my own car, a 2000 model Mitsubishi Lancer (http://img.alibaba.com/photo/11061030/Used_Car_Mitsubishi_Lancer_1_5_Year_2000_2000.jpg)


    Now like every young dude, I want to make some changes to the car, some performance, some cosmetic. One such change is a body kit (a subtle one) and instead of the Mitsubishi symbol on the front grill, that should be wire mesh with the kit, I desire to use a large Autobot sigil.


    Does anyone know of any talented metal workers or perhaps even a shop that might sell such an item?

    There is a shop on eBay that sells metal Decepticon and Autobot emblems in various colors. I bought a couple Decepticon symbols (in purple, of course) from them to use on my car. They're not bad, though they don't quite have the heft and classiness of factory-made automotive emblems. They also might be smaller than what you are looking for; they are about 3" x 3". However, I'm reasonably happy with mine, and I actually like the fact that they are relatively small and subtle.

    Anyhow, they might be worth checking out:

    You got the wrong car, then. Should've bought an Audibot.

    I have been thinking of tryong to track down the magnetic sheets they craft the car magnets and fridge magnets from, then get a good sized Con symbol, and cut a magnet out for that size.

    That was should you have to do something professional you car can look more serious, but should you want to just be a kid so be it. The only con being people could just steal the magnet. Also you need to have a metal hood if you want one on the hood.

    Those are the sort of thing I'm looking for, it is a shame they're a bit small. but hey, they'd still kick arse.


    Thanks for that, I'll keep an eye out for other stuff too :)
