Replacement Badges for STI Shifters?

I'm looking for a set of replacement badges for 2001 Ultegra STI levers. Anyone have any ideas?

If you know the model number of the levers, you could always search the Shimano website for the exploded view drawing (EV) and it will tell you the part numbers.

If these are the ST-6510, there's someone who sells 3D printed front covers on ebay, $20+/pair.
Original replacements parts (cover, hoods, levers) are hard to find since it's so long OOP.

Just one thing to add: if you find the ones you want, it's worth stocking up if you can. I have a few spare pairs of 6600 and 7800 nameplates just in case.

This is really cool - I had great difficulty finding these parts for my 6500 shifters about 10 years ago; I imagine it'd be near impossible without this source. I'm going to buy a set asap.

One thing that a buyer of these might consider - bring the old, beat up ones into a local sign/decal shop and have them make a duplicate of the graphics on clear material to stick on them if you want the OEM look.

THanks for this thread and pointer.
