That's cool, but probably really expensive. Starr started doing custom bottle openers as of Fall 2011, with a run as small as 1 bottle opener! They're $20 instead of the regular $9, but it's an idea for those looking to do something no one else wants to do. THIS ALSO GIVES YOU THE OPTION OF LOADING THE LAND ROVER LOGO IN THERE, but it will be one color.

http://www.customopeners.com/

I was thinking along the lines of this.

Does Anyone have the vintage Land Rover plaque in a format I can upload for them to lazer print in? It would look like this:

Jay, very nice. How about top right and bottom right together - the truck on top of the "Land Rover Defender 90" - how does that look?

I really like the one on the left. Do you have the design file for that so that I can run/upload it through here?

Awesome, thanks Jay! Just ordered!

Does anyone have the ability to make a file that looks like the vintage Land Rover Solihull badge/plaque like this?

I can do it when i get a little free time to put it together

or if someone has a old printed manual - you can scan it as line art at 1200dpi and it will reproduce fine

Oh nice. I was trying to do it over my lunch break free hand in Microsoft Paint, but I suck at it.

here is my evening stab at it - the online images are poor to use to trace but printed that small on a bottle opener you might not be able to tell

AWESOME!!

Can you e-mail that to me please if you think this compressed picture is not as good? I may try reversing the colors, too, to see how that looks.

Like this, but in Adobe, because my Microsoft Paint does not do it justice - it makes it all grainey. Eternally grateful!! I swear this is it.

They both look good.
