Daimler Engine Badge

Replacement Daimler badge close up

Classic car enthusiasts often find it difficult to obtain replacement badges, particularly for rare models. When one dental surgeon needed an engine badge for his Daimler, he solved the problem by taking an impression from the badge on a friend's car. From this, we were able to create a new casting which preserves the sand-cast texture of the original component. Unlike Daimler's badges, which were manufactured in chrome-plated brass, our badge was cast in solid Biosil 'f' cobalt chrome, which should long outlast the car.
