It's going to be a little while before even the letters are cast.

The RT emblem will be a legal problem unless I get it licensed, something I'm not ready to tackle right now. I do have a set of NOS ones to copy though.

I'm climbing the learning curve at this point.

They were done with a 3D printer Andy. They're a little crude, but they are correct in dimensions.

Once I am convinced they are correct, a brass set will be milled to make the molds. Like I said before, this is a big learning curve I hope works out.

Agreed Rich and anyone who believes differently can speak with the folks at Laysons Restoration Parts about Chrysler's position on protecting their copyrights.machinegunekelly

As far as the hood letters go Rich, I'm assuming that your reproduction letters will not have the Chrysler Pentastar or part numbers cast on them correct? Otherwise you will have to pay the Chrysler licensing fee.

It's very cool that you're taking this project on my friend and I wish you the very best!

Jeff, 66 letters are not the same in looks, but also the two "D" s are the same in 66, but not in 67, go figure. Pin location is different.

If this turns out good enough, I'll make sure there will be enough for everyone.

I thing the rears are the same or at least close to 69 rears. Pin location may be different too.

Like I said, this will be a big learning curve!

Richard, you are 100% correct. I am merely making 10 individual letters that have the same shape and font as the ones some of us need and if you happen to put them in the right order, they spell one awesome vehicle. That's why I can't repro the R/T emblem without Chryslers permission . But if this goes well, I might consider it.

I have other ideas if this goes well.

Didn't I see that about some guys from Mopar Collecter Guide a few years ago?????????????????

It was actually folks from Laysons Restoration Parts that Chrysler had arrested after Laysons continued to reproduce parts with Chrysler part numbers and logos on without permission from Chrysler to do so Steve. There were some folks from Mopar Collectors Guide Magazine at the show as well covering the event, but they were not involved with the problems between Chrysler and Laysons other than to cover the story as it progressed.

I'd highly recommend to anyone who wants to reproduce Mopar parts with factory part numbers and Chrysler logos on those parts to make sure that they get Chrysler / Fiat's permission and pay the licensing fees, or things will go badly. Not really sure what Chrysler's position would be on making parts without part numbers and logos as in this case with the hood letters, but it might be a good idea to ask Rich before you go much farther with this project, especially if you have plans to sell them to others. To be perfectly honest, Chrysler hasn't given a damn about these hood letters, or any other parts that used on the 1967 Coronets for 50 years, but if someone were to start reproducing any of those parts and selling them, they will be interested again very quickly.

Not to start another conversation on your thread Rich, but copyright laws in my opinion are a complete cluster**** and need to be completely rewritten, especially when the company holding those copyrights have shown no interest in the items being copyright protected. Ranting

09-18-2015, 10:41 PM
Richard, they way I'm making these letters is no different that let's say Felpro makes a valve cover gasket for a /6. It is clearly a part for a specific Mopar engine, but it is considered after market. Felpro puts its name on it, not Chryslers name. If the 5 letters were made as one unit, I would never be able to make any with out Chryslers permission. Same goes for the R/T and other monikers. That is why most of Year One's emblems all of a sudden were on national back order, then went almost completely away. There were guys making these copyrighted emblems for years because Chrysler didn't care and I think it get a little out of control. I also think the Laysons debacle has much more to the story than we will ever know. I have a funny feeling he ignored or didn't honor requests/demands that led to what we do know happened. Keep in mind Year One was selling R/T, SuperBee and many other clearly copyrighted emblems and nothing happened to them. Most likely they took Chryslers demands seriously and complied.

If this works out well, I may consider other things including licensing for specific "things" LOL

thebankerstoy
09-19-2015, 12:11 AM
I agree Rich, it was documented that Laysons had been ignoring cease and desist orders from Chrysler until Chrysler had enough and took action. I can't speak about anything regarding Year One, but I would have thought that they would have gotten permission from Chrysler and paid the licensing fees to reproduce many of the parts they've been offering for many years, but maybe not.

I'm just concerned about you my friend, so please be careful with this project. Those hood letters are badly needed indeed, but not at the risk of you getting in hot water with Fiat and Chrysler. After seeing Chrysler go after various Mopar clubs around the country years ago for using various Chrysler copyrighted names and logos, nothing would surprise me regarding what they'd do if copyrights were involved. Situations like this is exactly why I'd like to see copyright laws revisited and specific time limits put into place on how long they can legally remain in place.

So I finally got the brass ones back. They are not perfect, but I think will do fine. The fronts I think are great, but the backs were a little over tumbled and lost some mold line detail I really wanted to be in there. I can rough it up a little with a file, but I think it will still not look like the originals. I think I'm being too picky. I've been having a hard time getting these guys to understand I wanted to keep some imperfections to make them look like real production parts.

I'm going to try to get them to the caster soon so I can start the process.

OK, here are what they look like now. I asked for a test run of 5 sets of each made. The caster did 7 and the plater lost one letter. They still need to be painted. For these ones, I'm going to hand paint them. For later runs, they will be sprayed just like the factory. I'm working with the 3D image guy to make a set of stencils for painting.

They came out just the way I was hoping, with a little bit of flaw. The caster really didn't like the way they turned out because he likes to buff each piece and get the flaws out, but that was not how the factory did them. I didn't want the sharp lines to be lost.

The only other issue is the pins got plated a little too much, like about 5-10 thousandths, these ones need to have the holes drilled out just a bit to fit perfectly.

I'll be bringing them to Carlisle to show them. Let's see how that goes.

I'll get close up pictures when they are painted.

I've owned both 1966 and 1967 Coronets, so it's probably just me that thinks of things like this, but aren't the 1967 hood and trunk letters so much cooler looking than the 1966 hood and trunk letters? This is one change between the two model years that I believe Chrysler made a good choice to change.

Richard

ws27
07-10-2016, 06:01 PM
They are distinctly different Richard. And for some reason the engineers decided they didn't want you to interchange between years, so they changed the pin locations.

I'll be picking up the letters after being painted and will post some close ups.

I hope they look good...

ws27
07-10-2016, 10:17 PM
OK, here are some close ups. The black paint was done by hand and is not perfect. I will be spraying the next batch.

I have another problem, the pins are not the correct diameter. I think the chrome was applied too thick. I need to figure out if I can either ream them, or maybe thread them. Three days to figure it out!!!

The ones above and below are originals. Three of the hood letters I'm holding are NOS, the ones with paint.

Things are moving along finally. The castor was able to cut them down with a machine, not sure how exactly, but they were successful.

So now, I'm going down to Rhode Island tomorrow for final inspection and to place an order.


We are also going to try the 70 500/RT letters which are unlike any other letter due to they are swaged or peened onto the finish panel.

Then... 66!

So I thought I had a set of NOS 66 letters, but found out they were not the same curvature. So I'm thinking they are for maybe a Polara? I'm actively looking for a nice set of 66 letters so I can try to reproduce them too. My 66 has only two 66 letters and three 67 letters, I didn't remember that. If anyone has any, I'm interested.

So what I've done is 67 hood, 67 500/RT rear, 68 rear, 69 500/RT rear, and with a little modification 70 500/RT

The 67 hood letters will also fit 67 Charger. They will also fit 66 Coronet and Charger, but are NOT the correct style.

They also will come with the correct attaching hardware (70 excluded).

If you are interested, PM me and I will give you my email. Ordering will be done by email and payment will be by Paypal, but I need a couple more days to set that up correctly. I will also take money orders if you'd like. No credit cards sorry.

Price for each set is $150.00 plus shipping. As of right now I found a flat rate box for $8.00. I'm open to other suggestions if you can find something cheaper. I feel they need to be in a box to protect the pins.

I'm sure I'll be adding to this as time goes on.

Those really look nice! Are the white ones for a 68-9? Gets me thinking custom like matching the insert paint to the car.

The white ones have a lip around them that the black ones don't. The white are 68 and the black are 67/69

I lowered the price of the rears to $120.00, shipping is still $8.00..

Here's a couple of pictures on a hood and the rear on a 69 trunk. Keep in mind the 67 trunk and 69 trunk are the exact same per part numbers.

Please make sure I have your correct order, name, and address before you send money. I've had a couple of people send money and I had no idea what they wanted, nor who or where they lived.

...On second thought, maybe I should complain about people throwing money at me.:)

They are not mine. We had a discussion on this before.

I won't bash Tony's Parts as I don't know him.

I will only focus on my attributes. They are made in U.S.A. and I went through great pains to keep the letters crisp because when you polish them, you lose the detail. If you lose the detail, they look like rechromed ones, not originals.

Do you still need the rears Jim?

Sorry for going there, I saw that post and immediately thought of you.

Eventually. I still have a few higher priority before it is time to start working the chrome, need to get my speedo fixed and front seat covers. Once that is done it is time to start prioritizing the chrome. I need the bumpers redone for sure and then start working on the letters and front fender blinkers.

Not yet, and maybe not ever. They are taking pre-orders with no promise date. I was told the earliest is next year.
