cool car, it was built at Bendstons transmission adapters in Ham Lake Mn, about 2 miles from my home. Gary Kollofski and Dale Pelvit have built many Car Craft feature cars over the years. it`s cool they are so close by and bring their cool creations to the car craft summer nationals every year. this car won in 2013

im just going to make the guys in the pre-press dept. do all the photoshop work etc. i`ll just give them a rough text sheet and lay-out plan. they are pretty creative and it`s slow time at work until about the new year. im thinking about the 1/4" clear plexy, maybe do the back side glossy black with the text on the front side. i thought aluminum but not sure, it looks cool with the brushed finish. we have some nice size aluminum sheets left over from the Polaris sports job we did. Indian motorcycles used some cool veneered plywood and we have some of that too. so just tire kicking but will post when i get it done, hoping in the next few weeks. very nice looking display board Danny, i`ll make sure not to copy yours to the T, lol  :)

i work in a print shop, im going to have a board done similar to Danny`s. i figure the cost of ink is something like 50 cents to a dollar. we have several substrates to chose from. im planning on 1/4" plexiglass for mine. i might be able to do freebies for anybody interested but you would have to send a file with all the info. that way i can just send the complete file to the digital printer and bingo !!! we have thin aluminum sheets, 1/4" plastic, 3/16" paper/foam artist board and many more types to chose from. still planning on the layout for mine. oh, the ink is UV so should last many years even if exposed to the sun. we also have digital laser cutters and routers so the edges can be rounded or square with no burrs or rough edges.

well i bought my car from the 2nd owner in `96 (he got it in `70 for a grad present) and i never had a spare mounted in the car yet but will asap. i have a full spare set of YH wheels and will make sure the hook is long enough. i hope it is right or i will be scrounging the junkyards for one. what year Z ?

check your hold down nut too Gary, see if it was plated like mine. the more i look at the pic of my J hook it looks like maybe it was phosphate plated maybe ?
