Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

the good thing about the INTERNATIONAL logo itself is they used it from 1941 to 1957 on all trucks except two ton & up,,

so finding some not pitted ones may be easier than making new ones,

not so much with the L-110 ones, very limited supply available.

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

That's good to know. So then the mounting pin locations were the same through those years.
If anyone is interested in selling one or a pair of non- pitted international emblems, just send me a private message

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

Did all the ash tray covers have Cream color for the International lettering? I see the ones in Nikkinutshop's emblem drawer were cream colored letters. I know mine is on my truck.

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

Since we are on emblems...anyone have a front hood emblem in good shape they would like to sell. My plastic one has been bonded together a few times and it is faded and lost its original colors. One made from metal with the diamonds engraved would hold up better.

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

Answer to three questions, 1. If no one comes up with a set of "international" I may have a set, remind me next week, am tied up with caring for my Mother till end of Month, and can not look to see what I have. 2. Everyone that I have seen has had the "cream" color on them unless repainted to match a dash. I am no expert. 3. Lots of luck, I think someone on the old site was going to try to make repro's but do not know and have not seen them back on yet. I have seen the metal ones come up once in a while on Fleabay. Yours looks a lot like mine. I think that if a person could make a mold of both inside and out, a casting could be done in Clear resin and painted.
Anyone out there remember who was thinking of doing that?

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

Awhile back, I was seeking out parts for another vehicle and ran across a company that makes and sells those plastic IH hood emblem inserts. It has the ruby red backgrounf, 2 white diamonds and a blue center diamond, just like the original...and as i recall it was WELL over $100.

If I can find the site again, I'll post it...but I ran across it totally by accident.

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

HE SAID: When you made your own emblems for your projects, what material did you use and what was
the best way to polish them when finished? Did you add a clear coat to them?

I used a standard buffing wheel set-up that starts with a more aggressive sewn cotton wheel and grey compound. l then finished it off with a loose cotton buffing wheel and green compound.
I used aluminum for the base metal on the IH hubcaps and EFI pieces.
The long cowl stainless INTERNATIONAL was mounted on a piece of wood to stabilize the emblem and with better control is less likely that the buffing wheel will catch and destroy the badge. It is my limited experience that a little heat from polishing friction tends to make the final finish just a little finer. I have a polish preserver that I bought from a hot-rod shop. I do not remember the name, but I will check for the name tomorrow. I polished my LINCOLN wheels outer flange, for the FORD, about 10 years ago. The preserver has kept the wheels in a just polished condition. I do not use a clear-coat.
I made a wheel mount stand for the LINCOLN wheels from a free trailer hub. I was able to press the wheel against buffing wheel with some extra force. I controlled the wheel rotation with my gloved hand. When we polish the wheels for my son's "L", we will use a similar stand, adapted to the truck wheels.
I have not made any of the sided script because of the increased time required and the difficulty.
I have a product called LAB METAL. It is available in a high temperature version that will withstand powder coating ovens baking. If a person wants to take the time to detail a pitted INTERNATIONAL side emblem, it can be chromed with a cold spray on process. It is on YOUTUBE. Check it out.
There is no magic, just a bit of detailed work and lots of time. There are a few local laser CNC shops, in this area, who can make very detailed cuts. I am sure that a few sets of the INTERNATIONAL letters would not be a problem. Less money to spend, requires more personal time. More cash and anything can happen. I have the time.
I would rather have tools I do not need than to need tools I do not have

some guy had 3-4 new old stock ones on ePay a few years back, very pretty, they went for big bucks$$$$$$$$$ I'm thinking over $400-$500 each? long ago. brain is weaker now,,,,

someone should be able to pop these with a 3-D printer.

Re: L110 EMBLLEMS

Mister Pete 222, AKA TUBALCANE has a channel on You Tube. He does a lot of machine shop how to and casting. It is the metal casting videos that show the many details involved in making a part. There will be required some hours of careful work to make the original example perfect first. Not much point in casting a new part with the original problem.
