I need to do the same thing for my hot rod. Looks like it might be a bit pricey...time to talk to an old buddy I work for.

I've got friend who does aircraft modelling and he does his own photoetching. He got some fancy paper from an electronics store that I believe is used for etching circuit boards, draws out the parts on CAD, prints it to the paper which then irons on to the chosen material and then he etches it away. It looks pretty good too, I was going to make some brake discs for my Le Mans entry kit this way. I'll find out what the paper is and what chemicals he uses and let you all know soon.

Well interesting thread, please let us know what the material your mate uses for his/her DIY etching, Willster.
