Not sure though but, When lettering is taken off, You'll see dirt lines and where the letters used to sit, You would neede the whole truck buffed out to match all the way around.

not a white background but the orange will still pop off white as well and if you ad in a black drop shadow or outline to the lettering will really pop

Man I really love that Ford! I have been kicking around the idea of having some lettering done on my truck. I think it would look better than the magnets. They work but lettering would be awesome! Have fun this year guys.

Elwer,
Palatino Linotype Bold+Italic Font

Your colors, saying Paradise Landscapes

one exception added. Brown as lower right shadow to make it "pop" on white.
