    I finally came up with a name. I'm not sure how to edit the post to it, but its Cleveland Klunker. I made ahead badge, using the original hawthorne badge as a basis but put my own little spin on it

    Haha the secret is out! Yes hydographics. Remembered a few things that day, how long it has been since I have sprayed liquid paint, and how much labor in masking is involved!

    I worked at the place that did it probably 15 years ago, he is all liquid base paint, I have been powdercoating now for a while, was a different swap back that's for sure. I did all the labor on it to keep the cost down
