    heh for $30 not bad that's just PCB plate with acrylic diffuser. I can easily do things like that
    if i can figure out how to make universal PCB then i can cut shapes custom on my machine right away for any request

    They are sealed up pretty good, It's like they mold it with pcb inside. I was worried they would get water in them but 2 winter's so far and all is good. I have blue on front and red on back. Just find out the standard sizes of bowtie's chevy made and make those. I am sure you would sell a crapload in the market, i.e. chevy car/truck forums. On a side note do you do laser cutting of acrylic? SNO

    sealing is not big deal, even DIY with clear silicon works well, obviously factory seal is better but then its 1000pcs run. I don't know how to sale those many, would need to know dealers who can do distribution. I'm running engineering company so we only know how to makes things lol

    And yes, we do laser cutting and engraving on all organic matters including acrylic. I need to cut something?

    I will try to get a little more information for you on them. I haven't had time to really do much on the avalanche site.

    My guess is that the PC board will be the most expensive part of the whole project.

    If there are 3 different sizes of chevy emblems would it be possible for you to make a board to fit the smallest of the 3 and just make the body sizes different?

    Also, how hard would it be to have 3 or 4 different levels of complexity with these? I ask because the chances are if we can make simple ones you may be able to sell quite a few of them and offer up some higher end ones for those people who might be willing to pay more for them. (Personally at some point I would LOVE to have a display that would be as good as a video screen and would pay $500-600 for it. but for now a simple one that has the vertical lines or a low res text display for about half that would work for me. )

    Complexity levels:
    1.So maybe the bottom has a single or tri color LED but the whole piece is the same color. (tri color you give a choice of colors that the user then can select from some device.)
    2.A tri color one that can be controlled by a computer so you can do the separate vertical lines.
    3.Simple LED character displays that have to be computer controlled to work.
    4. Full blown display capable of displaying a picture...

    for different sizes with one PCB it will look awkward when you have large badge like yours with 10" width and display inside is only 5". So for best viusual it probably should be each style separately.

    For different levels, i would probably go with cheaper Chinese components rather then trying to mix single color LEDs with RGBs. In that case I can have say 100 LEDs in badge instead of 40 as i have now (alrough mu current badge is 6")

    Another thing that i need to verify is cost of production of actual emblem, if you have 10" then casting it may be very expansive (lik individual castion) but at the same time production of 1000 pcs our of platic will have high setup fee.
