Wink Dash Labeling, the right way

Hey guys,
I have been aiming to get a Cobra since I was 14 and first learned about the car from Gran Turismo 2. I finally managed to get one on 4/27 of this year! I bought one that was already registered and titled in NJ (I have two jobs and no time to build the car, let alone fuss with the state over paperwork for months). I needed to just drive one, haha.

Anyway, since I didn't design the dash layout myself, it was hard to remember what all the switches and warning lights were for. I decided to make some aluminum badges, black anodize them, and laser engrave text on to them. I also made a large badge to put on the passenger side because this car has no glove box.

I named the car "Shogun", which is a military leader of feudal Japan, similar to how the Cobra rules over many other types of cars in terms of looks, fun, and performance. Hence the logo I created.

I also didn't want everyone asking about the horsepower or speed of the car so I put some jokes on the label. I said the HP is over 9,000 (a joke from dragonball z tv show), and the Top Speed is the speed of light.












Best regards all!
~Chris

It wouldn't be hard to do, but I don't think sales on here would be enough to cover a vendor account
