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, (link above in Lugnutz 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 “” 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.
And again THANK YOU all for the support! It means more than you can imagine. thumbs_up

I think a “New” topper would go over very well. After all we have a potential market of over 42,000 members.

Ok… here is a picture of a printed topper. It is printed with PLA filament. The PETG just doesn’t work well with my Grandsons printer.
The PLA filament is pretty durable. It does tend to warp some in direct sunlight.
I am going to put a couple coats of either acrylic clear coat or I may try urethane. Either one should make it more durable. Give me some feedback… what do you think?

As soon as our weather, here in NC, clears up enough for me to work in my shop I will paint the one in the photo and post an update.

I purchased a custom topper for the car I gave my granddaughter. It had a flag background and the name of her high school and my son removed it. I asked why and he was correct, it tells where the car will be 5 days a week and for how long. I did think of putting her name on it but thought better of it and did not..
