I’m Frederic from France, I used to have a Pantera but not anymore (but she will be in my garage again one day, it’s just a question of time).
This post follow my previous post about key holder where I was looking for vector files.
I have a poor key holder with Detomaso logo but it's just a cheap chinese crap. It's a piece of leather with a piece of steel on it, and on this piece of steel there is a "doming" sticker, not nice and not even the right color.
So I decided to build my own dream key holder, as I'm the owner of a shop who engrave stuff with CNC machine.
Proud to Chuck (thank you chuck) I had vector files, so I was ready to go.
After some work on the file and a small test, here is the result !
In my opinion it’s absolutely beautiful, I’m happy with it (even if it’s just a key holder after all)
The first goal was not to sell it, it was for my personnal use.
But it's so great I would be happy to do others for enthousiasts....but...it would be very expensive...
The key holder would be around usd 60.00...(precise price to be confirm).
I'm currently engraving a bigger plate just to hang on a wall. Pictures will come soon.
This one will be as nice as the key holder but it would be so expensive, maybe between usd 210 and 260...for a size of 12x 7 inches approximately (precise price to be confirm).
I understand it's too expensive but it's a long time with CNC machine, and it's a long time labor of my employee.
It's high quality craftsmanship.
Keep in mind this post is more to show what I have done and not to try to enter in a production to sell it. I don't care if I sale no one. I can lower a lot the price for severals
Last point, I absolutely cannot guarantee the longevity of the paint on the keyholder because keys are in pocket, keys can fall, keys can be threw on a table, it can be scratch,...
I just got mine this morning and I don't want to put it on my keys because I don't want to scratch it but definitely I will have to try.
I'm thinking of putting a protective vernish (like a nail vernish) but even so...it's uncertain.
But for the bigger plate, it's would last almost forever as it would be standing on a wall, even outside (in this case it last for years but nor for ever).
Question : Is it the right blue colour ? I think yes because my front emblem on my Pantera was this color.
