    I just got hooked up by my good friend Jack with his new "Build-A-Badge" creation. It's a metal grill badge that is designed to hold a magnetic badge. Mount it once and swap out the magnetic badges all day long.

    I feel like Santa came early to my house this year :D

    Oh ahh....

    /me points up to navbar to subtlety remind Snooter about the badges showcase he can show them off for all in.

    Of course with suitably larger images.

    I like it. Got that cool look. Reminds me of the old SAABs and the mid '80s MB SL's.

    Bravo. Well executed :Thumbsup: I love it.

    Only thought is to maybe mount the threaded mounts a little higher so the badge sat a bit lower within the grill surrounds....but that's minor.

    I'll have to play with it a little and see if I can center it a tad.

    I like that look as well as it is very close to the original English style. Is this something that he is going to sell (or does) and idea of the cost.

    I got the Build A Badge and love it!! Gene (MINI of Dallas) drilled holes in my existing MINI badge holder to accomodate the Build A Badge. The bracket that came with the Build A Badge didn't quite fit for my R56 (slat) grille. Did I mention that I love it?

    Glad you like it! I'm close to having a solution for the R56 Cooper slat grills and will gladly ship you the mounting hardware once I have it finalized. Glad you found a suitable mounting solution in the mean time.

    That looks great! Those badges are beautifully made. Thanks for the order. I have 8,000 miles to go and will be putting one on MINIBee with a matching pin on my hat!

    Not a problem! No complaints. My comment about the bracket wasn't meant negative. As soon as I figure how to upload a picture from my iPhone to this forum I will show off my Build A Badge. Loving it!
