i've contacted some people in regards to these - as far as i know, no-one makes a production-run of these at all for EF/EL's yet - only the BA's :? so if you can find someone, good luck - if not, i'd be doing something custom!

P.S. - caps lock is your friend :P

Surely not difficult to source the mesh and create some sort of stencil which can be used to paint whatever you want on there?

Well if you decide you want to get your own design you can go to for example in Sydney, liverpool exhausts, next door inside there complex is a laser metal cutting place which laser cut metal flanges etc etc u get the drift.

realistically you can get some say 3-5mm thick sheet and ask them to cut it with your name in it or whatever providing u have the design and them not ask for a jig to be setup (costs) etc.

otherwise melwire or whoever as i said and just put a badge infront or get a pair of tin snips and cut out what u want said?
