That is beautiful !!
That would be great wall art/sign for the garage... just a thought
That is a very cool idea!!! No worries about tabs or the backside, a walnut enclosure with an LED backlit plate below the emblem with your truck info would be cool, hmmmmmmm

Just approximations....... the problem is that I would take a few steps forward. Stop, try a few different things, move forward, stop, try a few other things, etc.... Now that a procedure is established it would go more smoothly but, I did this on a broken tab item and not one complete. I know the 2 end parts would work fine, I am just not sure about the middle one. It might or might not work with the existing middle tab, either I would need to modify the center tab or make a new one like I did on my truck.
1. Cutting out the letters doesn't take long. Maybe 1 hour since being slow and careful.
2, Prep and painting of the emblem took the longest since I had to do it twice due to an issue. 2 Days
3. Cut and shape plexiglass to fit properly, 2 hours
4. Install the LEDs and diffuser 3 hours
The first one always takes a long time, as it's a learn as you go, but I'm sure he'll be able to do ours much faster.
Well, ping me in a few month or two, maybe .....
