    hey guys,
    i remember someone on here having thier brother or someone hand painting a magnetic door sign. i've tried to search them but found nothing. i'd like to talk to them about what kind of paint they used on their magnet. i remember it was a white sign w/ a tennis ball looking thing on it, he had just put it on his mid 90's ford.
    or if any of you know what type of paint would work, that'd be great.
    thanks

    Hi aclassic,

    Any reason why you would rather paint it than use vinyl?


    walker-talker,

    That came out really nice.

    $$$ ican get the magnets for $12 each and hopefully the paint for not much more, have some art student at school paint it, opposed to spending $90+ on signs that i may not even use after i get rid of this truck
    if you know of a way i can put vynyl on this thing then enlighten me please

    Search eBay, I think you can get the printed magnets for less than $50 for the pair.
