SVT build Number Plaque
Darkstar Motorsports is currently gauging interest in custom interior plaques with your SVT build number on it. They will look something like this:

Specifications on the badge itself:

3" x 1" 1100 Alloy Aluminum with Brushed/Satin Finish with a hard anodized clear coat.
3M VHB (Very high bond) mounting tape
Strength: 25 lb/in of 90 degree peel adhesion strength (440 N/100mm)

Anodized / Clear Coat Specs:

Mil-P-15024D Type H & G
Federal Spec GG-P-455B


Chemically anodized black and blue dyes followed by a mil spec anodized clear top coat. The result is an image that is chemical resistant, and highly durable for outdoor applications in direct sunlight and in salt water conditions. The plate of metal itself would have to be destroyed to affect the image due to the state of the art manufacturing. Traditional silk screen or printed badges has color that can scratch off with your fingernail, and the colors fade in UV light... These military spec bad boys do not have a raised ink surface and will last a lifetime.

Each badge has been anodized and CNC cut from a sheet of 0.050" aluminum alloy sheet which is very robust. In addition, each badge is backed with 3M 4949 VHB Black foam tape. This is a premium mounting acrylic/rubber-like pad that will allow your badge to mount to your exterior paint, or textured surface plastics. Designed as an exterior fastener to replace rivets, spot welds, and liquid adhesives, 3M VHB is made of a viscoelastic acrylic foam that is energy absorbing with outstanding durability. (UL746C)

The acrylic adhesive is 100% resistant to full submersion in water, salt water, hydraulic fluid, 10w30 motor oil, and glycol antifreeze. 90% resistant to kerosene, 50% resistant to jet fuel, 35% resistant to gasoline, and 5% resistant to MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone).

If applied at room temperature, 50% of ultimate bond strength will be achieved after 20 minutes, 90% after 24 hours and 100% after 72 hours. The higher the temperatures, the faster the curing time.

If you have any questions you can either contact them directly or post up in this thread:

Thatd be a sweet mod to have

I think it would be THE perfect touch to the interior, would really add something to it without being gaudy.

I have interest. Use this instead of the vinyl numbers?

jgustafson 02-11-2009 02:02 PM

Yes it would, but you could have both, this on the inside, and the decal on the outside.
