Luna Hood Ornament by Ebony-Lent-Lily Luna Hood Ornament by Ebony-Lent-Lily
Upgraded my hood ornament
no I'm not a sculpture wizard
I used a 3D print off shapeways
and some chrome paint

I'm extremely happy with this 
It turned out so good

I am now sad that my car is not designed for a hood ornament. If it was, I would absolutely copy this.

Wow that's a special kind of hardcore. Very impressive. As obsessed i am with the color red, it would seem more appropriate for a blue or purple paintjob.

and yah I know
I had to move it to add the hood ornament
and the way the bolts on the back were set up
it was easier to re mount it upside down

I have a 1978 Lincoln Town Car that I named "La Luna" and I've bewn looking all over for this. May I please buy one from you?

Ahh yes I've seen you around DA

I'm afraid you can't have this particular one
Grell (my car) is far too pretty with it

I'm also afraid that for me this is the eve of an extended work related trip
so I won't be available to make one for you either

but what I can do is this
www.shapeways.com/model/780798…
this is the exact item I used
I bought it in the "Black, Strong & Flexible Plastic"
I then bought a can of automotive chrome spray paint
and used most all of the can on it
something like 13 heavy coats of paint
the model comes with lines in it
part of the 3D printing process
I don't know if you know what those look like but it's common on most 3D prints
with each coat of paint the lines got less visible

I then used the base from a "Chrysler Imperial" hood ornament
google it if you want to see
the bird in the Imperial hood ornament is bolted on at it's base
I ground some of the base to make a better platform
and I shortened the bolt and put a small hole in Luna's front foot to fit it
I also applied the strongest epoxy I could find to all three of her feet that make contact with the chrome base
hit her with any force and she'll probably pop off
but she holds on at highway speed just fine
rough roads and everything 


You will of course have to use a slightly different design for your car- you have an existing hood ornament mount
I didn't

and I can't really be of much more help to you than that
you can either try it yourself 
or forward my instructions to anyone else you find who is willing and capable 
I wish you luck
if you have any questions I can try to help, but I make no promises of my capabilities
