The generic topper would probably fly off the shelf! Hope you can work it out! Fingers crossed. Ed

Can you do a heartland version of the toolbox emblem?

I don’t have one of the toppers, but I do have experience in painting 3d prints. You can sand and use primer like anything else you paint. Start with something in the 150 - 220 grit paper and sand until You get most of the lines out then spray with a rattle can buildable primer. Sand smooth with 320 then top coat. Easy-peasy!

Looking forward to receiving mine, hopefully any day now. thumbs_up I'd be interested in seeing how others have painted theirs up but don't know where, or if, starting a thread to ask for pics would be appropriate.

My Grandson started this venture to honor the Southern Bolters. We have printed a couple other regional toppers, but have kept it a Southern thing, for the most part. AND Lugnutz’s painted topper was icing on the cake! Fantastic job Jay!!! I am honored that you made the truck the same blue as my “Old Blue” ‘53! shake chug
Check out the video in Lugnutz's post if you haven’t yet.

I want to thank all those who have supported Eli. He feels like a real contributor to the Southern Bolters now.

We have had this thread going for well over 30 days. We will continue to make more toppers/emblems as we get requests for them. However, I am starting to get requests for “Stovebolt.com” toppers. And an Admin has suggested a change to the design which I really like. I guess what I am asking is would there be enough interest, and is there any objection by the Southern Bolters?

We will still continue the original design for any Bolters who want the exclusive Southern toppers.

Please let me know what you think. (PM works!)

And again THANK YOU all for the support! It means more than you can imagine. thumbs_up

We are working on a template. As soon as we have a drawing and approval from the Admins I will post a picture.
