Imperial script issue. P.E. available?
Posted by 195X on Saturday, February 04, 2017 12:00 PM

Too bad there isn't an "Imperial" font on here. (Don't tell me if there is, it'll only upset me).

I had the AMT 1966 Imperial convertible/pickup conversion. But I wanted a four door with a roof because you know.. they're awesome.

So I now have a '65 body, but it has no scripts. I have since gained more appreciation for the car and have decided I would like to do the convertible some day. So as the title says, because my search came up flat, does anyone make the proper script in P.E. or possibly stamped foil decals?

Not going to need them now. :) I have decided the '65 will be a custom or Green Hornet. Either way I don't NEED the scripts, but would still like to know if they're available.

I doubt that there is anyone out there making Imperial scripts.

It's far too narrow of a market.

most likely the only remedy for your problem would be to cast your own.

I was a little afraid that would be the likely case. I'm thinking, a quick sculpey dam and some resin should make a quick, few use mold.

Some guys will make a mold using kitchen foil from another body, then fill the mold with CA glue.

Once the glue has dried, you can trim the edges of the mold and you have a "pre-chromed" emblem.

I've not tried this technique myself, but it makes perfect sense.

Just not real sure how well it would work for a fine script on something like your Imperial.

I've heard of people doing that with epoxy, but it doesn't seem to me C/A glue would work.
