Hello,
I just bought a monster of a car.
A 1996 golf cl 1.4L. A fine a car as any ever made.
While I have no plans to do anything to this car other then drive it, it is missing the front vw emblem from the grill.
It's not worth my time to bother replacing it with another vw emblem. But If possible I would like to find a custom replacement.
What I had in mind was an anarchy symbol (of the same size and shape)
But I’m open to other ideas.
Surely this has been done before? Does anyone know where I could get such a thing?

Look in the classifieds section for a new emblem or badgeless grill, it would just cost you more money to custom make something, and that idea is just silly.

I'm surprised by that reaction.
Sure it's not the best idea. and maybe a bit childish.
but I think it would be funny all that same, and on a forum for talking customizations etc. I would have expected more them someone telling me my idea was 'lame' and just to copy what everyone else was doing.

well if you really want to do that, id suggest getting a cheap oem grille emblem from a junkyard, filling it in or covering it up, and then carving it out of that ? it'd take some work but you could stencil what you want to make and go from there... might take a couple tries but such is dub/life

seems like a fair bit of work alright.
unless someone else has an easier idea. it might just have to stay a hole in my grill.

well you could always go for originality AND cost effectiveness and fill the hole with a jelly donut ?

now thats an idea, that might just work. sure it wont look great. but the anarchy golf isn't about good looks.
anyway the sun is out and I'm off to the pub to think over that idea with a pint bottle of bulmers.

that or route the intake so the cone sticks out the front of the car http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Custom vw emblem for grill of 96 golf cl (Six13racer)

if i dropped a log on the roof of my car and went around calling it the turd mobile that would probably be pretty damn unique. Doesnt mean it would look good though.
Im all for originality, but good originality.
How are you gonna get round the fact that the A extends past the circle? you would either have the circle smaller than the opening in the grille or two circles. Or if you just make the A fit the circle it will just be an A in a circle and miss the point....

Get on the bulmers and come up with another random idea though!

how about do this face in your badge space...
