derby cover engraving

Came up with a couple designs and one i found on the internet to engrave on my derby cover, which one you all think is the best?

Anyone know the radius of the dome of the derby cover, save me some time of trial and error since i don't have a way to measure it precisely.

Or i may just fab up a flat cover to replace the existing one if i can't figure out the radius.

It's a coin toss between 3 and 4, they all look good though.

Definitely four! I agree, there is a niche for this type of work if you want to help the community and make some $$$...

Seriously if you do this. It'll be well worth your time. When Pondo used to do this & he was revered within the VRSC community as a pioneer. Now it's your turn.

I hope you make all 4. You'd have NO PROBLEM moving them. I bet you'd even have a waiting list. That's how quick these things are gonna go.

quick and dirty

did a few quick and dirty test parts on flat stock just to see how they might come out.
need to adjust some tooling and programming a little but think these just might work out.
Now on to experimenting on the curved surface of my derby cover to see how it's gonna machine.
don't mind the first one, it's a receiver cover for a friend, just thought it came out good.
