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.

Our casting now graces the dynamo cover of a 1963 Daimler SP250 "Dart", one of 2,645 manufactured by Daimler between 1959 and 1964, primarily for the American market. The engine is the standard 2.5 litre, 140 b.h.p. OHV V8 power plant which was developed for the model, and the badge now nestles in the 'V' of its cylinders.

Double hinged sectional denture

Double hinge sectional denture framework, open

This case required a small unilateral denture to replace the patient's upper right 5 and 6. It was decided to use a two-part or sectional technique to ensure positive retention. There are numerous types of two-part denture designs, but this one may be unique to Creative Chrome, having been devised by Steve to fully engage all of the available undercuts when locked together with a P.W bolt (figs 1 & 2).
