Default "Exotic" 3D Firebird Emblem?

Ok so our cars aren't really luxurious and exotic, but could I want to see if it's possible if one of the sponsors (Emblempros I think it is?) could update the look of the Firebird emlbem?

I'm talking about a re-designed (could someone photoshop please?) 3D chrome/metal emblem like the Ferrari's horse.

It would need to be made in a mold, or a 3D milled piece. Even the mold would need to be milled. Either one would be very expensive. A large amount of time would have to go into it.


Thanks, Roger

Yup, you're pretty much asking somebody to re-design an iconic symbol, sculpt it by hand/computer, then make a mold of that or machine it for mass production. It's not really about the materials, it's about the amount of labor... and cash.

It's unfortunate to hear that as I was hoping to really update the look of the car emblems front and back with something more modern and exotic.

For sure. I think it would look really sweet to have a small size one to fit the filler panel between the tail lights, and a possibly larger size one for the front bumper.

Thank you. It's just a shame to hear that it would be ridiculously expensive to make it sounds like.
