      Was looking for some cool car art for my house. This was the first one that I purchased - the VW KDF form 1933:






      This is 15" wide. I got it from Queen City Fab, check them out here:

      https://queencityfab.com/

      They do all kinds of custom metal work including for grills, parts, etc... I was so impressed with the workmanship that I asked them if they could make me a Auto Union logo. They said sure, check it out:







      Than they did a Porsche logo for me:







      In the last week they did a VW Rabbit for me as a gift to a friend who loves Rabbits:

      Neat. How big are these? Edit: I see you said VW is 15". I checked out the sizes of the other ones on their site.

      Also wrote to them about making a BMW roundel.

      Thanks for the link!

      Looks cool! How do you plan to use/mount them? Is there a mounting tab on the back or something?

      That VW one is Nazi-riffic!
      FS: 17" wheels + snow tires, fits Chevy Volt, Bolt, Cruze, Sonic, Trax

      VW KDF one is 15"
      Auto Union is 24" x 7"
      Porsche is 20" x 15"
      VW Rabbit is 15"

      These are heavy gauge metal - maybe 1/16" thick. They have hooks on the back. They can do whatever you like, they are very accommodating. For the custom ones all I had to do was provide the logos and they did the rest. They are very reasonably priced - $30-50 depending on complexity and stuff.

      Here are some other ones they have done. On their web site they have tons of stuff - military, signs, etc...

      These are all pretty awesome. My SO got me one last year for Christmas, though I don't think it was from this same company. Really stomped on the gift I got her

      no wonder SO didn't like it. Fair warning: A vacuum cleaner isn't a good gift either.
