    Nice!

    Did you only bolt tgat down with the three bolts on each side?

    Do you have any problem with the wind catching it ?

    That is one really nice laid out sign. Did you design it.

    I made it from 1/4' plywood, and it was around 3ft by 4ft. I painted the whole thing dark blue and had a girl I knew who was a talented artist draw the logo and phone number on it. Looking back, I would have used that corrugated plastic cardboard stuff, much lighter!!!

    A local sign shop laid it out for me in about 15 min. and had it fully completed in about an hour.

    yeah, my guy is working on mine too, he said he would email me something by Monday to get a start. He is pretty good, hope he design for me is good.

    He is also doing my truck doors, tail gate and back window.
