Take That RBP!!!
 
Took some aircraft aluminum, cut it out, filed it down, buffed it out. Waiting to color match it to my truck and put it on my rivet grille. My way of sticking it to RBP's price tags. What do ya'll think?

What thickness did you use? It's the one thing about RBP that makes me mad, their prices are astronomical and the quality is kind of lacking, my 2-pc RL grill was rusting 1 year after installation.

.190 aluminum, perfect weight too

I've gotta just ask why? It's like claiming something you don't have. I jsut don't get it.

That being said, it's not my truck, just curious as to the point.

reason is that it's my first initial and my aunt painted that exact logo in 1991 on my wall. I don't care for the company and I'm not paying 1700 bucks for the logo. Just a bit of nostalgia lol

:smileup: RBP, in my opinion, is such a waste of money, $1700 for a grill! Ha thats gears and a locker. Talk about mark up, its probably $20 in materials.

great job on making the badge, I agree with everyone that rbp is way over priced.. nothing from rbp will ever be on my truck ever... fuel grills are way nicer and alot less money. If I was going to get any grill though I would buy a royalty core, they are expensive like rbp but you are getting something that no one has for the most part, and can be customized the way you want it, andf they look alot nicer IMO.

It was actually 22.50 for all the materials for the grille and badge :LOL:

I would roll with it if they gave me one.

Nice one!!

RBP actually doesnt even make their own grills. TRex is literally 5 doors down from them and makes the grills for RBP. They just slap on their stupid badges
