Pinz symbol

Post by Peresh » Fri Nov 20, 2009 8:07 am

Gentleman,
the front hood symbol that has the two circles plus the bottom which says "pinzgauer" that I have seen have all been painted green. I've seen some of them which have not and are silver/colored. Where can I get the orginal ?

SAV carries both. 7111711002/96 is the Pinzgauer name plate. It looks green on their website but is actually unpainted metal. 7001711502/55 is the Steyr plate. They have both available used also but would probably be painted green. They are not difficult to strip the paint off however.

You'll need someone with small hands to mount them. The studs are in a really tight spot.

pinz emblem

Post by krick3tt » Fri Nov 20, 2009 8:48 am

Mine was green too.

I eventually got a cheap pot at a thrifty store for $.99 and added some TSP to the water and boiled the paint off. (The emblem is aluminum and will not tolerate much abuse.)

I sprayed the emblem black and used light grade sand paper on a flat surface to sand the standing surface clean. Now it looks very much like the original, minus a few colors.

Removal and installation is a bit of an issue as the nuts are very small and waaay up in the front.

Do not try to use one of your wife's good kitchen pots to boil the paint off.

Even easier is to just lightly sand the surface of the emblem while still installed on the truck. Eventually you'll get to bare metal on the raised surfaces which can then be polished with fine steel wool. Mask off the area around the emblem and clear coat the entire thing.

It won't look as super clean as Morris' idea, but the ease of doing it makes up for it. :)

I want to remove the green from my front emblems. Any one have tricks different from Morris’ TSP in boiling water?

Thanks
