    I was wondering if anyone does anything like this? Mounting a toy or replica of a plow truck on the work trucks and leaving it there year round. I can remember many years back a tractor lover mounting a International tractor to his hood as a ornament. As a branding tool this worked. His truck was just a truck no fancy tires, paint or do dads.

    i know what your talking about, but I don't see how this would relate to creating an image for you business "branding" elaborate.

    Branding is basically doing multiple things to make your business remembered or to just get your name out there.

    I sub contracted fencing from a fence contractor. He bought a brand new FORD 12 ft. flat bed truck. Had the doors lettered professionaly. Then he made side boards for it, and painted them this bright blue. It didn`t match the truck at all. UGLEY!!! I asked why he painted them that color, and he told me so people take notice. He`s doing real well with his buisness, so who am I to argue.:nod:
