Lotus horn push badge (black/silver)

PostPost by: lotustastic » Sun Jun 07, 2015 12:33 pm

Well,

I gave up on trying to locate a new Lotus horn push in black and silver for my Chapman steering wheel boss as the original emblem/button was glazed and heavily cracked (in picture) These appear to be unobtainable. So, I've casted several of my own and painted (with practice and patience). It's not concours quality (had to cast from my original) but good enough for my eye and much better than the original. It's installed on the steering wheel now. Just needs a final polish... :D

Later,

David D.

Hi David,

I might be interested in one of your horn push castings if you are willing to do some more. If so, do you have a price in mind?

Thanks all for the replies.. I could probably make a few spares. Haven't any idea about price, just something to cover time/materials, maybe 14 GBP ($21). I'm located in the U.S. This is a 1.5" dia. horn push emblem.

Thanks

Hi
Could you send me one too please? I have the black and silver nose badge on my car and I can't find my horn push.

Any particular payment method?

Cheers.

At this rate you may need to make the castings, then send them to the members for them do do their own black painting.
