Custom fender badge for electric Volvo Amazon wagon

My Volvo Amazon wagon is a sports edition and thus had 122S fender badges.
Badge 122S
However, officially is should have been 222S and on the standard wagon 221.
That badge however was only used in the first modelyear, 1962.

The one for the Volvo 222 badge is even more rare probably since it was only used on the modelyear 1962 cars of USA export.
After 1962 Volvo has decided to use the sedan badges on the stationcars as well.
I’d like to have a custom fender badge with 222E. My father is also converting his wagon and this is a standard edition so that would become 221E.
Eugen from Gun Custom Guitars wanted to create both. Normally he makes this kind of badges for the guitars he builds.

So he designed the badges.

And after some refinements milled them from brass.

After that they have been chromed by Jacobs NCI.

Really nice job!
To paint them I went to the local pharmacy to get some ‘tools’.

And used paint from a spray can to fill up the badges.

I am going to improve the red color and fill the small unevenness.

I really like the end result, thanks to Eugen and Petra/Jacobs NCI for their efforts. Will take a while though before I can really install them on the fenders.

Also electric?

Do you also want to convert your car (Volvo or another brand) to full electric? As a spin-off of my own EV conversion project I started EVcreate for 'enabling EV conversions'
