Bitch bitch bitch..... Sheesh, back on a positive note. Thanks Ryan
Thanks for letting me know. One of the June girls, I should have known...
Probably can't tell but it is Model A engine green a banger thing. Thanks Ryan
just got it today.....Thanks to mcmopar
Got mine..going to have to buy a small brush for paint lol
Anyone polishing these?
I thought I would give that a try.
Considered polishing but since I dont have anything else polished figured what the hay
Not sure what you have in mind for the paint, but I just rattle-canned the entire piece then used a sanding sponge to remove the paint from the letters, the surround, and the stars. That left only the background in the desired color. Beats my trying to use a small brush with my shakey hands.
Got mine today, the quality is excellent, I'm as happy as a little girl!
Got mine today,Now time to paint and polish..
You are smart....me not so much lol
Got mine last week but must have received an early piece. It seems to have a bit of slag on the right bottom of the "H". Any ideas how to clean it up?
Got mine yesterday, looks great! Thanks Ryan. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
adds character, very rare flawed model, like a stamp with the image upside down. worth more.
a dremel should be able to clean that up.
I just got word from Bridey that my package from Atomic arrived today. Can't wait to get home and open it up . It's like Christmas - Oh wait ... it IS , LOL !
Got mine polished up. Next I'm going to try to paint the background black, then figure out where to put it, top of the license plate frame aint gonna work.
Cut tab off, make another from aluminum strap (1/8" X 1", 1.5" long) JB weld strap opposite to where the original was, hanging the HAMB 'topper' from the lower side.
Now it's a 'Bottomer'. Don't know who did this and 'coined the phrase', but was glad to repeat it!
Hope it works for ya!
Can't wait to be able to put my new tag topper on this.
Mine came this morning as well. Both are perfect, very happy. One thing i thought of, there was no charge for shipping, that makes these even a better "deal". Thanks Ryan.
Yeah, I saw that and considered it, but wasn't sold on it. I got another idea I'm going to try first.
Got mine today in Perfect Condition. Thanks Ryan.
Mine showed up today thanks Ryan.
Got my goodie bag today. Thanks Ryan!
Here's mine. Thanks Ryan.
My tag that just arrived is certainly not the quality of my first one, with some blemishes and definite lack of definition on the lower half of the "M" . Once filed smooth, the M will look like a block . I'm hoping a little cleanup with my Dremel will make it cool. My first topper is crisp and clear. Maybe the forms are getting worn out ? This one is stamped with a 6 on the back, my first one is unstamped.
Don't get me wrong, in glad to have it, since they're so hard to come by and will show it off proudly ... Once it's warmed-over a bit .
For those guys that didn't get one, it took me 11 years before I was able to get the stars aligned to get mine, so stop yer whinin'!
Gotta get 'em polished and painted, drilled and filled before they go on these.
Mine turned out great thanks to Barry
