Anyone know where I might be able to find a Tesla badge - the shiny chrome "T" logo?

they dont sell them so you have 2 options

1:- buy a S and take the badge off

2:- find a Tesla and take a screwdriver to it Image

Try a crash repairer and see if they have access to them.

I've tried having them made in China but so far the language barrier is proving to be a bump in the road.

I also approached a maker group about using one of their 3D printers, but they got all frowny and muttered about copyright... I tried pointing out that it's a trademark, not a copyright issue, and that as it's for personal use and not something I'm going to try to sell (or use to defraud someone else) the law has nothing to say on the matter, but that didn't make them happier.

I think it'll eventually become an excuse to buy my own 3D printer (I already have the 3D logo file anyway) but I'm just hoping to find a quicker way.

Thanks for the replies -

You could try a local jeweller?

Interesting idea! I just remembered I know a guy who owns a forge, too - he mainly makes swords and wrought-iron fences/gates etc, but he might also have leads.

Not so much - almost any of 'em would do. I have the .eps file for this one which I was able to extrude to a 3D form on the Shapeways site, and I may pursue that angle as well.

But anything shiny, suitable for outdoor display and recognizably Tesla would do!
