    I bought a Stihl belt and buckle a few weeks ago. Then last Sunday, an acquaintance gave me another similiar buckle. It was heavily worn, so I painted it.

    Where do you come up with the time to do all this stuff? You must be an insomniac. The buckle looks good though!:clap:

    I don't have much time in it. Less than an hour for sure.

    You know what they say about belt buckles, right? They are just a tombstone for a dead ####.

    I do too, really. But I was born in Oklahoma, and lived in Texas until I was 6, so it's in my blood:)

    Great job on the belt buckle, the orange sure shows up with that white chain. I have a limited issue one from Stihl also that has the two man cropsscut on the bottom, the airlines have tried to stop me from flying with it more than once, they think it is a weapon.

    Wow, looks great! :clap:

    I've been in metal finishing for years, I used to have a Heineken buckle when I was young of that die cast material that I gold plated, that thing was pretty flashy.

    That's back when I did more beer drinkin' in my youth.

    I was actually thinking what one could do with such a thing. If you weld a 2” piece of square stock to the back you could use it as a receiver hitch cover or just weld it right onto the bumper. Be handy for ramming Volvos and the like. You could also epoxy it to the middle of your steering wheel so you can honk at people who are using stihls. If you put a hole it each end, the orange and black one would make a good musky spoon. Earrings for the misses??
