John   I think HUGGY needs one. Don't know about the 5mph faster though.

Just let us all know when and how much.

Has John arrived yet. And started on his new project.

John -

Your reproduction looks really, really nice!

As you know, NOS breastplate emblems for the '04 are like hen's teeth, just like the RF clearance lamp lens and the rear window glass.

Glad to see somebody making a replica, albeit for a dwindling market.

Make sure you send the word out to all the transportation museums, there are several who have '04's in various stages of restoration.

Put me down for one, too!  I'll add it to my memorabilia collection. . .

Wouldn't be surprised if JLV also was interested, and possibly Derf Namyar, too!

Gus,
If you can find the remnants of a old one, or a really good picture.  We can probably get one. I don't know what a 4107 looks like either. 

Maybe RJ can show us a picture.

PD-4107 front emblem
Non-Greyhound had two silver GM metal letters.
Greyhound PD4107's had a casting that had the Greyhound dog logo cast into the casting.
Later GMC Buffalo's had the chrome metal letters GMC.
The non Greyhound PD-4104's had the GM Coach emblem that is being reproduced.
The very early Greyhound PD4104's and PD4501 Scenicruisers had a oval running Greyhound dog emblem that was white plastic with a silver Greyhound in the center and it had a light behind it for back light night time use.
Later Greyhound PD4104's and PD4501 Scenicruisers had the embossed running Greyhound plate.
The Non Greyhound PD4106 has the metal letters GM
Greyhound PD-4106's had a metal casting with a Greyhound dog in the center.
Note some Trailways operators had a Trailways emblem on the front plate of their PD4104 and some had the GM Coach emblem.
Hope this helps.

Several people have asked how the medallions will weather. 

They are made of the same material as tail light, and marker light lens.  Should weather just like your lights

Gus, Not a clue after the bus leaves it's first owner.
If it were a PD4501 Scenicruiser you would stand a chance on it's life history.
There is quite a lot of information on the yahoo groups for Scenicruisers.

We need the remnants of a 4107 emblem and the rear emblem on a Silversides.  If you have something we can work with we may be able to reproduce it just like the 4104 Medallion.  I'm willing to pay a reasonable price for the remnants.  Send me an email or msg.  jvickrey@gmail.com

I'd like to say a big thank you.

After all these years, someone is making something happen about getting some busnut quality reproductions of these marking and badges.

The hobby takes note and is grateful.

Amazing

Hi RJ, Takes someone from the other side of the world to find what I have been looking for.

The GM on the front of the Drivers Denning DenAir is the one I was after
http://www.busaustralia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=45789

Shows some good Aussie buses there and the good import off course.

Now I just need to find one. (it will be nice to have my initials on the front of my bus)

Thanx
