BR Logo Special Announcement!

ADVOCATE'S CORNER:

NOTE: This "Advocate's Corner" message board will be used from time to time as a way of communicating with our membership. We will keep the messages brief, they primarily will be used to let you, the members, be apprised of information that is of value.

SPECIAL MESSAGE - Finally the Boxster Register Metal Car Badge

It's been a long time and we're finally setting up the order information for our Boxster Register Metal Car Badge. I'm working with our PCA national staff to finalize the details for placing orders through the PCA web-store. The badge samples I received are beautiful and with the finest craftsmanship we all expect. Because of the different types of mesh inserts around the roll bar covers on the 986, 987, 981 and the 718, we had to make the badge flat with a small hole on each side for supplied hardware. I'm positive everyone will be happy with the design.

Look for order announcement and information very soon.

I'm Keoni986
ps, 84 new member welcome letters went in the mail today. The reason for the delay was the new BR logo decals arrived recently and I wanted to make sure our new members received the updated decal. Thanks for your patience!

Add my thanks to John for seeing this thru to its logical conclusion. I had the chance to talk with John a couple of times regarding the flat vs. curved shape along with the different mounting options. I think everyone will be happy with what we're getting. I will proudly display mine along with the others I have.

Default Special Announcement!

Great to hear itís really happening John! Thank you for the tenacity to push this through.

Although I am currently Boxsterless, I plan to order a badge anyway as I plan to own another in the future.

This reply has nothing to do with the car badges, though I'm sure they will be great. It has to do with the work put in to get those badges. In any group or organization there is always a small cadre of people who do most of the heavy lifting, and guys like me get to enjoy the benefits of their labor. So I'm simply taking this opportunity to say thanks to John and others for making my Boxster life so fulfilling, yet so easy. Thanks.

Thank you, John for your endless efforts to see this project through. I'm pleased to learn the badge will be flat, since my CPA-PCA 50th anniversary badge interfered with the lowering and raising of the top on my car and I had to remove it. The badge, not the top! I'll be placing my order when they become available.

Yes, thanks John. I know it was a long road to get to this point. I remember you showing me the prototypes at the Amelia Werks Reunion in 2017. Can't wait to order!

Yeah, Iíve had to shorten the screws on every badge Iíve bought over the years. Itís easier to shorten them to fit your installation than it is to stretch them if theyíre too short.

Another problem was the screws were not threaded the full length. Taking care of this tomorrow during the PCA open house visit.

OR, to have to go out and buy replacements with the proper length and thread diameter/pitch. (don't ask me how I know)

Hi Winz

No you didnít miss out. Iím on my way back from RRVI and will double check when I return home.

We will make a formal announcement when the PCA webstore has set up the order process.

Thanks for your interest! Youíre going to love the BR car badge.
