Badgeless Grill- VW EOS

Started working on a badgeless grill for an VW EOS. Who cares, right? They sell them already. True but the don't make them with out the euro plate and to me it takes away from the clean look that you are trying to accomplish. Plus you get the added benefit of a factory fit and the plastic matching underneath when you pop your hood.

I start with cutting the factory center section out. The grill is two part, one being the black plastic and two being the chrome shield. This is a tedious process and there is no room for error here due to the fact that when you fuse the badgeless in its place its got to be just as snug as the original.

The badgeless bought grill is the also cut out just like the factory but with even a greater need to be perfect as is will mate up the chrome shield and any error will definitely show.

once these to are cut up they are ready to be fused together using a plastic bond agent.

Next we move on to the shield, using part of the purchased grill it's cut out for the notch to be filled were the emblem once went. this too is also fused in and filled with a plastic filler. Once sanded smooth and primed the Grill shield can be painted to match.

Project 512- Austin, TX

Dorbritz Designs is proud to announce that we were invited to attend "The 512 PROJECT" as a vendor in Austin, TX.  Without hesitation we took them up on it.
This is an event that you do not want to miss on June 26, 2010, I don't care what state you have to drive from. It will be one of the biggest of its' kind in Texas and represent the scene in which we are so much a part of.
Please stop by our booth and introduce yourselves, we would love to meet you.  We will have free decals, some new shirt designs and some old favorites as well. We will also have some of the products and services on display so stop by and check them out!
Here is a little info on the show:


StanceWorks is proud to announce a special collaboration with Fatlace / HellaFlush in the form of an event far different then either entities have done before. In the constant pursuit of thinking “outside the box” in coming up with new experiences that few have been apart of, we present to you The 512 Project.

This event will occur on June 26th and will take place in capital of the Lone Star State: Austin, Texas. More importantly is not where it is occurring, but more “on what” it is occurring.

I would like to present to you DriveWayAustin:

To give you a better idea of what I’m referring to, here is a quick write-up:

Driveway Austin is a unique motor sports training and entertainment complex located in the heart of Austin, Texas. This state-of-the-art motoring academy brings a European style and flair to Central Texas. The superb Grand Prix Course has elevation changes, signature corners, extensive training facilities and a F1 caliber track that weaves its way through canopies of trees alongside the Colorado River.

The world class circuit design incorporates features of internationally famous tracks around the world including Fiorno, Imola, Laguna Seca, Road Atlanta and Monaco.


Pictures are worth 1000 words though, so here is a taste of what the track looks like:

 We will be renting out the entire track for the day. So your going, “well sure, plenty of people hold car shows out at tracks… what’s the big deal?” This is true, but how many car shows happen ON the track?

Yes, that’s right… the event will be happening ON the track. The cars will be parked up and down the sides of this unique motor sport creation that few have ever even seen being that it’s mere inception started in 2007.

DJ Dawodu will be laying down the beats, with give-a-ways from various vendors and sponsors, as well as other surprises… more to follow.

One of the biggest notables is our media partners that will be attending. Our good friends at AWOL and WagenWerks will be in attendance to do what they do best. On top of that, the crew from 360VM will be out filming as well as some of the best photographers in the scene right now, including representatives from Speedhunters, HellaFlush and of course StanceWorks. Suffice to say, if you have been looking to have your car covered in ways that few have, that should be reason enough to show up. More notables will be announced along the way.

However, we are not stopping there.

For all registered cars, our friends at MayDayGarage will be hosting staged rallies from Dallas and Houston called “The Capital Run.” You will be given a starting point late the night before, to meet up the following morning to cruise down to the event for early roll-in. All cars in the show will be set up in advance before the gates open around noon.
