I kinda want to make a piston cup trophy or a cup or something out of the old pistons i have from the dead engine of my old car.
...an engine i never did get torn down to see how bad the damages were on.

@echo51 sounds like a plan

@echo51 You could easily sell thousands on esty before Disney shuts you down. You have two very engaged markets: NASCAR and Disney fans. I'd buy one since I'm both.

@echo51 I usually just give the pistons from dead motors to our advisors for paperweights and change/paper clip holders. If I knew how to weld proper I'd get more fancy. I wanted to make some sweet laser etched name plate/card holders out of them. Making a trophy as pictured shouldn't be too hard. Access to a lathe, welder and a can do attitude and you're set.
Side note on the image. Would the equivalent of this be giving an athletic runner a human heart trophy?

I need to 3d print a heart now to give to someone for christmas, lol.
I have access to all the fun bits at work, could probably even mount it up in the CNC mill to engrave the side of the surface

I remember making one in shop class in highschool. Used a Civic piston and some wings off an old Cross Country trophy they were throwing out. We called it the mini-Piston Cup. Pretty sure it's still hiding somewhere in the upstairs storage of our shop.
