Robert...$183.48 for 12 of them...could have done 6 for $171.30 (which was the minimum)...might as well drop the extra $12 for twice as many.


FYI...I also sent them the old center that I removed... so they got the dimensions perfect the 1st time...they said they would keep it on file for future use.

Thanks for sharing... I look forward to seeing yours! I really like the idea of a custom badge; it tops of the whole idea of customizing the Fiero as a lot of us tend to do.

I had this work 'pre-done' thanks to some helpful thief who likes Fiero badges, and popped it out of the black housing. The mod you're doing is exactly what I wanted to do, can't wait to see what it looks like. Dome-label was one of the companies, which I considered. - How much did it run you? What did you say to get just one made?

I was thinking of making custom center caps for the new logo as well.
