2018 February batch

Welcome to the 2018 February batch for Devil Horns emblems!

Devil Horns emblems have been approved for a small production under direct permission from Toyota Motor Company's Legal Department under certain rules and conditions. Please follow the simple rules that will help me deliver this emblem to you listed at the bottom of this listing, if it weren't for them I wouldn't be able to bring this product to your hands. 

2018 February batch:
Batch is open for pre-order on all emblems until February 11.

Finish treatment:
Emblems will be sent out for finish treatment around February 16 with an expected return date of March 5.

Shipping:
Emblems will ship shortly after they come back from finish treatment around March 5. Be advised that the shipping carrier will need a few days for delivery.


Model T
Model T is made of 100% American made materials, 6061 T6 aircraft grade aluminum 3/8” thick. With a unique threaded hole pattern on the rear, Model T can be used in conjunction with other “soon to be available” hardware or if preferred it can be used as a stand-alone item. Model T will be a two-tone finish only; no other combinations will be available during this batch. Shot penning with black hard anodize will be the base of the finish, adding a layer of brite dip will enhance the shine in anodize and make the surface have a subtle sparkle effect. The top surface will have a brushed aluminum finish, followed by a layer of protective sealer applied by hand. For installation on OEM Toyota grilles, Mid Bracket is needed.








Model T sizes:
Big Model T (emblem size 6.8 in. by 4.7 in, recommended for oval width 5.5in. and above) 
Small Model T (emblem size 5.5 in. by 3.8 in, recommended for oval width 5.5in. and below) 


Mid Bracket
Mid bracket is a mounting hardware required for the installation of Model T emblem onto OEM Toyota grilles. This bracket is installed between the OEM grill and the Model T emblem. While designing the Model T emblem, I came to realize that by having a standard bracket mounted on the OEM Toyota grille would allot me not only to mount other types of emblems, but also facilitate the fabrication process, minimize material use and diversify the use of Model T and further upcoming emblems. Mid Bracket is not needed if using mesh/satoshi after market grilles. Every Mid Bracket will be shot penned and have black hard anodized and brushed aluminum on the logo. (Below are products not yet treated for finish)

Model T and Mid Bracket Pre-order
Due to a legal agreement with Toyota’s legal department, I am forced to offer Model T and Devil Horns twice a year only. Fabrication of Mid Bracket and Model T emblems will begin after this batch closes. I will start shipping the first set of Mid Bracket and Model T emblems by May 15 and continue until all units are shipped. I will keep everyone posted on the progress during fabrication, shipping will be made as a “first come, first serve” basis (the sooner you order, the sooner we'll ship it). 

Devil Horns, natural raw aluminum 
Show below is an example of the texture after being fabricated; small visible marks left by the CNC machine are visible on the surface. People will often ask for a natural finish if they decide to custom paint it, powder coat it, etc. 





Shot penning 
This process consists of small round metallic particles with sufficient force to create surface deformation.
The result is an increased stress layer that hardens the outer area of the material making it stronger and more durable while leaving a grainy "sand-like" texture at the surface. Shot penning will come standard with any anodizing color.


Anodize
Anodize is a process where color is added to the aluminum at a microscopic level using chemicals and electric current. 
The thickness of the anodize layer averages only a few microns of an inch, virtually noting.
For best results, shot penning will be standard on any anodized emblem. 
Unfortunately due to weather conditions such as sun light, heat, moisture and salty conditions the anodize can fade over time. 

Cherry red anodize with shot penning


Gun Metal Black anodize with shot penning



Speedway Blue anodize with shot penning


Horns on Fire anodize with shot penning




Single color powder coat
Powder coat is simply paint in the form of powder.
Once each emblem has been sprayed with the color powder it is "baked" in an oven at 370 degrees Fahrenheit.
The result of this process is a hard form of paint much more durable than ordinary paint and about .012 thick on average.


Shot penning with clear powder coat


White Powder Coat


Polishing
Polished option removes the CNC marks and uses a polishing wheel to smooth the surface to a mirror-finish. After the emblem has been polished a layer of clear powder coat will be applied to preserve the shine. This is the closest to an original factory emblem finish.

Custom colors / options
I have tried my best to have more colors and options available for everyone, unfortunately every time a new color or option is added I have to pay a minimum charge to the vendors that provide this service. If you don’t see a color offered here it means it’s not available.


Installation requirements:
*5/32" Allen wrench
*5 minutes of your time (in most cases)


Installation Info:
There's very little skills required for the installation of Devil Horns. I have made it as easy as I could for anyone to install this emblem using 10-32 screws and washers with minimal time. This would be the typical installation scenario: 
*Open the hood of your vehicle.
*With your fingers, gently remove the emblem by pressing the tabs closer to each other (older models may require removing screws).
*Locate Devil Horns / Mid Bracket onto factory or after market grill and finger-tighten provided screws and washers to the emblem.

(If using Model T emblem, install emblem onto Mid Bracket first)
*Snugly tighten all screws with a 5/32" Allen wrench also know as hex key.

*Take your truck for a ride to display your newly installed emblem. = ]

It brings me joy reading about every one of you and receiving pictures of your cars/trucks. I will try my best to keep these emblems available, but I fear someday I will have stop making them. For the time being, I'm having my kicks making them for Toyota vehicles and I hope to keep making them for some time. It is my pleasure to bring you a unique item not sold or made anywhere else. 

Sincerely, 

Andres Diaz
