Default Looking for Legit-Looking HEMI 345 badges

I am interested in purchasing Hemi 345 badges for my truck. I want them to look like the Challenger badges (Hemi 392). Any ideas or pics

there is a guy on ebay that makes a set, but they are outrageous, $125 for the set.

Those would only look good on a black vehicle. The letters are all connected.

5.7L = 347.835 in³ So how big is our engine? 5.7L or 345CI?

Black1, the powers that be, seem to disagree on what to call the 5.7L
I guess that they decided not to put a badge or emblem with 347.835 cu. in on it
they just rounded it off downwards to 345 cu. in.
Chevy & Ford both use 350 cu. in.

Different Dodge listings mentioned 345, 348, 353, and 354 cubic inches as the engine size; possibly different people at Chrysler used different formulas to get at the cubic inches. Gaymon Wright's window sticker lists the Hemi as being 348 cid! Jack pointed out that the bore and stroke times pi times the number of cylinders = 353 - perhaps someone at Chrysler incorrectly used that formula. The 354 was probably a simple typo.
Derek wrote "the correct formula is pi x (bore/2) squared x stroke. This is because bore is a circle and area of a circle is pi x r squared! Try it and you will find 3.92/2 = 1.96; 1.962 (3.8416) x pi= 12.0687 x 3.58 stroke =43.20 x 8 cylinders = 345.6." (Mark Strode noted that if you use millimeters to avoid rounding error, you get 345.06).

Yeah but these are Hemis ie hemispherical cyclinders. Shouldn't that be accounted for?
