Mein Auto: Z4 M Coupe 6LL93033
coupe sill decal

The Z3 M roadster and coupes had a chrome decal (coupe or roadster) on the door sill under the ///M up to 04/99.
The Z3 M coupe c is lower case.
The Z4 M Coupe C is upper case.

Was planning on engraving the Z4 Coupe door sill with Coupe raw or color filled but ran out of time.
The decal is a pain to line up and once it sticks it's over. So for now I added the Z3 one under the ///M.
Looks pretty good since the chrome decal matches the M and lines on the stock Z4 Coupe.

After HC will be doing the engraving thing to see what it looks like.
Advantage of the engraving is that it is permanent and I can size it any way I want.
Could also do that with a decal too and may do so. Minimum 20 quantity.
Also will be doing a Coupe tach decal.

The BMW Z3 coupe decal now retails for $19.50.
LeatherZ sells them as a kit but probably sell them separate.

I'll sell the few I have left for $10 each if your in the same room. $22 if shipped for the first one.

Just a thought

Why wouldn't you have the stickie negative cut in sandblast mask and just blast the logo in?

Was not aware of sandblast mask and the process.
Any info on where to purchase the tape and process.

May try that on my radiator plastic cover.
It would solve the hold it issue.

Check out the "resist" material.

http://www.artglass1.com/sandblasting.htm

There are other sources (Truman's in Canfield, Ohio comes to mind).

I'll just send you some that I know works. I have a roll of 12" that isn't getting much use. 3 feet be good enough?

Process? Well you just have your art cut and weed the letters instead of the background. So you have a mask. Then you blast with an abrasive and remove. If you blast with something like walnut shells you can polish the area. I'll let your imagination run wild with that one.

P.S. you can use regular vinyl for smaller stuff. The resist media is a little more rubbery so the blast media bounces off.
