Default "Real" ERA Badges

Yo Bob, you there???

I've been considering which badges to use on my ERA to replace the exisiting "Cobra" badges. I was going to go with "AC", but then I got to thinking, "Why not genuine ERA badges"? Be proud of the car for what it is, a real ERA!

I'll need one for the steering wheel as well. How can I go about ordering or securing these? One for the front, rear and the original steering wheel center.

I could get behind that idea. Have such badges ever been made or made available?

OTOH, I have a full set of badges from a Ferrari 308 around here somewhere. I've thought about...

We'll see what Bob has to say, but from what I gather the ERA 'branded' items that I am aware of are the following:

- ERA Clutch & Brake pedals
- ERA floor mats
- ERA rubber fender mats

Badges for the hood, trunk and steering wheel would be cool ... let's see what the options are. I would be interested as well.

As far as I know, we've never considered making a steering wheel center cap. I'll do a little research.
One of our customers designed (and possibly had made) front and rear deck emblems. Maybe he's reading this.

If you end up making a batch, I'd like to buy one.

I'd be interested also.

I guess you could say we are all proud of our ERAs.

Here's an option to have them made, a bit expensive but the quality is very good. A group order just might drive the price to something almost reasonable.

Steve at Billet Badges also does them, but they're pricey. Custom side badges were about $100 a piece!

The major cost in these things is turning out the dies and molds. Badge #1 costs (for example) $1,000. Badge #2 costs $2. ERA could get a reasonable return from a first batch order of sufficient size and then have them for sale f'revermore.

Well, ERA, are you listening? I think the tide may have turned in favor of the "original" manufacturer. Some guys are proud to run Kirkham identifiers, as opposed to Shelby, for instance.

I'd be proud to tell like it is, it's an ERA, it stand's own it's own, no excuses required.

Eh eh, that would be SO outrageous you couldn't be called a "poser", a guy would just have to chuckle over it.

Heck Gunner, just paint it a bright Ferrari red and no one will know the difference. And don't forget the Porsche center for the steering wheel.

Describing them as a "Badge" is a stretch. They were stickers that were put over the standard emblem.

Bob, ERA could have a reasonable number of sets manufactured at an acceptable cost. A small number of advance orders would pay for the whole run and you'd have stock for... well, pretty much as long as there was demand.

Feel free to drop me a PM in the unlikely event you don't have the info and skills in house - I'd be happy to help out.

If Bob tells me to send him a check, I will. Then I'll just patiently wait for him to get them made. I know eventually they will appear and they will look like a million bucks.

Or maybe you guys can contact Kirkham and they can run you some billet aluminum ERA badges.
