Backlit Ram Shadowbox
Making one of these for my dad and girlfriend for Christmas, one with a rams head logo(thanks to moparornocar72!) and the other with a cummins logo

I'm still waiting on the emblem to arrive so I started on the cummins logo
I'm very glad I didn't even try to mill the rams head from diamond plate!
Hopefully the badge comes tomorrow so I can't figure out dimensions and start working on the frames (and order the lights!)

Man I waiting for things! Badges still aren't here but I got the frames cut out and the glass, hopefully finish the frames and boxes tomorrow!

Ok having a dilemma! I don't know if I should use the front or rear badge! My plan was for the front and use a piece winnow tint behind it so it would have a black background and some light would still show through and outline the actual rams head but the rear badge fills the frame so well!
What do you guys think? Opinions please! The frame will be stained with a blue back and blue lights like the one above
I'm definitely seconding guessing now, I'll probably end up trying both once the lights get here cause it'll drive me nuts

Got alot of my dads done tonight, it's been tough because my girlfriend knows I'm making one for my dad and my dad knows I'm makin one for my girlfriend and he keeps trying to help lol
Planning on finishing staining tomorrow and put the clips to hold the glass in and
the back on. Lights should make it here on time but the rest of the electronics won't

Coming along good man! Glad u got some use from my old badges!

Stangshcky12 12-20-2011 11:06 PM

Finished staining both of them. Spraying them with urethane tomorow and putting the clips for the glass and backs on and the frames will be done. I don't think the blue lights for the ram logo till the day after Christmas

Wow those are looking good and I have to agree, I like the tailgate badge better, nice job so far! :smileup:
