That will work . Still am going to inquire about the repro of this motor cover badge .All concure this is from a '52 5 * extra cab ? I think this one will find its way onto the Magic Air heater in the 1ST-RIDE . That means I will have a regular blue/ lght yellow heater badge for one of the restored heaters . whoops , forgot pic .

Denny, I think the 52 badge was for all models in 52 regardless of the 5 star package. Also I think that they were all suppose to be red and the yellow is from fading.

I used the same blanks as the 51s but had a different decal made. I had my local sign shop do it.

I think you're right, Jordan. My '52 V8 M-H is a base 5 Star with a Magic Air. Here's another pic of an original '52 badge. Stu

I'm with Stu. My standard cab '52 has a Magic Air with the same badge. The repop looks great, Jordan. MYLAR "FORD" LETTERS! LOL!

Those look great. They are a little different than the one on my heater. I'll get a pic tomorrow since it is late here. Mine has the little tabs missing, they get metal fatigue easy and tend to break off. I'll get back on here tomorrow.

I've had a conversation a while back with Mark Mossell, the chassisman, about badge restoration. He's made a buck in the shape of the face contour and has been able to work out the dents and scars on his badge. Same idea as with stainless trim repair, tapping it to shape then dressing with a file. He's also had luck making new aluminum tabs out of slightly heavier stock. As I recall him saying, he made them in a "T" shape then JB Welded the top of the "T" where the original tabs had broken off. Once installed the repair can't be seen. To me it would be worth trying, especially to preserve one of these '52 badges that has the raised image. Stu

I'm still on the hunt for at least one of the original 52 badges.

I made a dolly out of 1/2 inch steel with a 1/2 inch rod welded to the back, fits inside the 1952 Ford Magic Air heater emblem. hitting with a rubber hammer brings them back to perfect overall shape. also the little aluminum tabs I made to JB weld to the inner rim. curve them to match the inside contour then hold them inside to mark where they will go before grinding the broken tab stubs completely off. number them for their new position unless you make them all perfectly the same. Even the best tabs have only a couple bends left in them , so I replace all 4 no matter what. Works perfectly.

Hey Mark! Would you be interested in doing some resto work or renting your dolly? My badge has a couple dings around the rim that need straightened but I'm not brave enough to do it for fear of making it worse. A couple of the tabs look iffy also. That's why I've been encouraging Jordan to try to come up with a passable repop of this badge. It obviously won't have the raised lettering or be original, but most people won't know the difference anyway. My truck is going to get used. A lot. I'd hate to get my badge all restored and have somebody kick it or scrape it with something and ruin it again. I still want to get my original badge restored, though.
