Revo approached us after being impressed by the quality of items we manufactured for Matt Neal at Team Dynamics. They wanted us to manufacture custom metal plaques which would be adhered to customers cars they had tuned. Their idea was to offer badge sets consisting of rear badges, wing badges and additional stage badges so their customers could proudly display the level of tune their car is running. They also wanted a keyring producing in the same style and finish to compliment the badge sets.
