Ron,
Yes you can.

About 2 hours East of ATL on I-20 and 4 miles south of I-20.
Got Electricity and Water for 4-5 coaches.  Less that a mile to a
dumpstation.  Stop by and sit a spell.

Gus,
If you can find the remnants of a old one, or a really good picture.  We can probably get one. I don't know what a 4107 looks like either. 

Maybe RJ can show us a picture.

PD-4107 front emblem
Non-Greyhound had two silver GM metal letters.
Greyhound PD4107's had a casting that had the Greyhound dog logo cast into the casting.
Later GMC Buffalo's had the chrome metal letters GMC.
The non Greyhound PD-4104's had the GM Coach emblem that is being reproduced.
The very early Greyhound PD4104's and PD4501 Scenicruisers had a oval running Greyhound dog emblem that was white plastic with a silver Greyhound in the center and it had a light behind it for back light night time use.
Later Greyhound PD4104's and PD4501 Scenicruisers had the embossed running Greyhound plate.
The Non Greyhound PD4106 has the metal letters GM
Greyhound PD-4106's had a metal casting with a Greyhound dog in the center.
Note some Trailways operators had a Trailways emblem on the front plate of their PD4104 and some had the GM Coach emblem.
Hope this helps.

JLV,
Where can I find pictures of these??  Pictures with enough detail to create a reproduction in acrylic.

Several people have asked how the medallions will weather. 

They are made of the same material as tail light, and marker light lens.  Should weather just like your lights

Gus, Not a clue after the bus leaves it's first owner.
If it were a PD4501 Scenicruiser you would stand a chance on it's life history.
There is quite a lot of information on the yahoo groups for Scenicruisers.

We need the remnants of a 4107 emblem and the rear emblem on a Silversides.  If you have something we can work with we may be able to reproduce it just like the 4104 Medallion.  I'm willing to pay a reasonable price for the remnants.  Send me an email or msg.  jvickrey@gmail.com

I'd like to say a big thank you.

After all these years, someone is making something happen about getting some busnut quality reproductions of these marking and badges.

The hobby takes note and is grateful.

happy coaching!
