    I want to letter my red cargo trailer this year. I want to know if anyone has any pictures they can share or what were the best colors they used.

    How about some of that pretty gold 'foil' type lettering that I've seen on fire engines? Those seem to look great on red vehicles.

    We had a 48' red car trailer. Dupont Paint was the sponsor. This billboard(trailer)had all the colors in the Dupont rainbow. Solid white letters,letters trimmed with another color,letters on white background,and a full size picture of Dupont funny car. All done in vinal.Go to a vinal letter shop and look at pictures.

    My logo is on a red backround.White oval with black outer trim.White letters with black outer trim and greyshading in the center so it looks like chiseled in stone.

    I have no idea what the title of the thread was, but someone on here had a SWEET red trailer, I think with Yellow words, I think the dude was from Florida or California.. He bought the trailer, I think custom made, I think it was a dual axle, rear gate, side gate.. All speced out.. NICE..

    But I can't tell you where it is on the website. <G>

    Depending on the color red. I would use a flashy silver. A LCO around here uses those colors and looks very sharp.

    Black letterring with a gold trim around it. A guy around here has that on a deep red truck, kind of like the new chrysler wing emblem, it looks sharp as s***!

    I painted my rims on my mower gold. It is all black with the gold painted rims with chrome tire valve caps.

    That's as bling bling as I can go.
