CNC Machined Radiator Cap Part II

I’m another step closer to having a custom radiator cap for the GTO and Trans Am.  For the GTO I’ve decided to go with the old Indian head logo.  For the Trans Am I think I’ll play with the idea of a phoenix logo.  I experimented with filling the Indian head cap with colored resin.  I was trying for an amber color similar to the 50’s hood ornaments.  Instead it came out gold which looks good against the polished aluminum.  I’ll keep experimenting until I find a color that I like.  I’ll try red paint under clear resin next.  If anyone has other interesting ideas please feel free to submit a comment on this post.
