Post by Peresh » Thu Nov 12, 2009 2:16 pm

Where can I obtain the square swiss flag decal ? Tried SAV and Exp. Imports and couldn't find it.

Any ideas?

Miles,
Non of those are squares and even if I cut them, they won't fit that metal plate.

Did you contact EI? They used to sell them some years ago. May still have them but not on website. If I recall there was a name on the bottom of mine of the company that printed them, too dark to see right now.

These are the folks that made them http://www.metallsignwerks.com/ and they still have some in stock. EI no longer carries them.

They don't sell the decal but just the complete metal sign.

Nice to see this kind of enthusiasm about sporting the swiss flag on your trucks :D

As a side note, and sorry if this comes as a disappointment, "Suisse Armée" is not proper french... the correct way to put it in french is with the 2 words inverted (i.e. "Armée Suisse").

If you check the top right corner of the Swiss Army's website, you can see this straight from the source: http://www.vtg.admin.ch/internet/vtg/fr/home.html

Otherwise, you can opt for one of the other 2 official languages in Switzerland, German and Italian... :wink:

**These have been sold**

Peresh, I'd be willing to sell you a used set of them that I pulled off of my Pinz. The signs are in great condition, front and back, just a small rust stain on the back white paint of the front plate. This should be easy to take off but I didn't want to scratch up the paint with my super scrubber.

I'll include the hardware thats still usable, one of the spacers for the front plate didn't have the zinc coating? so it rusted but could be cleaned with a wire brush and painted, or just buy a new on from Lowes or Home Depot.

$50.00 shipped USA lower 48 - anywhere else you pay shipping.

If enough people want them, Tom at Metallsignwerks can make more. And he has been aware of the incorrect wording. Maybe a new batch with correct wording can be had.

I also wanted some as my 710K had blank aluminum. I ordered a pair from Metalworks, very reasonable & the look good even if the Swiss phrasing is wrong. :? Kevin

I know this is an old thread, but I was curious if these signs are still available? I was also wondering if someone could provide the dimensions of these plates?

The plates are 200mm by 200mm. The 4 bolt holes form a square 180mm measured to the center of each hole. The holes are drilled oversize to compensate for slight fabrication variations I suppose.
