That looks excellent

I thought wrongly that the ebay sticker kit would be poop so bought a new badge from Brikwerx :oops:

Well maybe, maybe not.

A sticker isn't going to last as long as a printed / painted badge, going to have to be careful when washing the van not to peel the edges.

how much was a new badge?

Think it was £30 ish (can't check a BW site is currently down for some reason)

I didn't use it for long as I prefer having the correct Caravelle GL badge on my bus :roll:

Draftsman :D

no CAD when I first started work, engineering drawings in ink needed the ink scatching off for modification, printed circuit board layouts were done with tape, it's a long time ago now.

Ordered another which I'm going to try fitting to the badge on the van this time to see how much harder it is.

Fitted another today but with badge on the van and it was just as easy.

fixed the door at a good working height and angle

found a good use for the ink roller to make sure it's well stuck down
