    That's a great idea, lets you take the name off the truck if you want.

    Joel, nice job! Very creative idea.

    kipcom, I notice that you are attaching your website logo to your post. What happened when you do that is that the thread show a paper clip icon, which mean this thread has picture(s) and this get some of our attention. We would not want that to happen, or we would be having too many threads with paper clip icons because of you attaching your website logo. To make us happy and to make your life easier, you can put your website logo and your info. in a "signature line". Go to your profile, click on "edit profile" and if you would scroll down a bit you will see a line that says "Signature". That is where you can put your website logo and info. What it do is that it will automatically post your website logo and info. for each post that you posted. It will not count as a picture, and the computer do all the work for you. By the way, I like your website logo. Very nice. :)

    I just got a small bottle of touch-up paint from a Chevrolet dealer, put some on a sheet of paper and brought it to a Home Depot. Took a few tries to get it right, but it looks pretty close.

    That looks really nice, not too much, but it gets the point across very well. Is tha vinyl laid on that wood? I like it, might try to make something like that this year, thanks for the tip, and the pictures!

    Hi John,

    Yes, it's a strip of self-adhesive vinyl lettering. I did notice a corner of one letter coming loose so I am going to put a coat or two of polyurethane over the letters.

    I've got a similar project in mind for my flatbed, using Bangboards , a plastic sideboard material. This will give me a low enclosure plus provide me advertising space as well.

    Pelican - those Bangboards look pretty cool,but kinda pricey.I wonder how tough they really are ?

    If you guys are going to put vinyl onto wood,then get a hold of some crezon.Most sign shops have it.It's not too much more than good plywood.It is very smooth and flat,so the vinyl will stick,and made to stand up to the outdoor elements.
