    Here's mine, but I'm guessing yours will look a bit more professional. If you don't mind me asking, what are the costs with metal. I'm sure it would hold up longer than this will, but this was only $25.00, and it's waterproof with six reinforced eyelets.

    ElephantNest, I paid $80.00 for a 24 inch x 36 inch sign and I paid $40.00 for 1000 new business cards to be made. I also had 2 magnets made for my personal truck for $75.00 but i'm not sure if I am going to use them yet.

    I was looking today and the channel that I used to build the frames for my signs was 1" not ¾ ".

    The inside distance between the channels was ¾ "

    Good luck littlenic

    No signs, I get too much road rage. Maybe I'll put some of my competitor's names on the truck so when I flip or cut somebody off, they'll think it was them and not me. Yeah, that's the ticket.

    i agree with eric 1 needs some nuts and bolts but the main thing is washers! mine has vibrated off many times.

    HAve a welder weld some angle in between the upright supports on the gate and space them for the sign. Drill them and mount the sign to that.

    Take a 2x4 and rip it down. Drill a few holes through steel on gate that sighn will cover(two in middle of gate). Place the wood you ripped against steel and mark and drill holes. bolt wood to steel,now you have a place to mount the sighn.

    I just put a piece of 2 x 4 in there with some button head galvanized bolts...threaded part out. I painted the boards to match my trailer.
