    Even with two strengths of readers I still needed the magnifying glass to make out the white lettering 😏. Ain’t old age fun?!

    lol, Some of the lettering on the sponsor decals is so small it's difficult to know which is the top. I've been taking pictures with my phone and zooming on the picture to get a clear picture.
    Old age is wonderful.

      Doing 10 cars all the same. These are replicas of a friends Bonneville Salt Coupe. After lots of time, I finally got lettering and numbers copied on clear self stick vinyl. They need to be cut out very close and applied carefully. Old shaky hands and old eyesight makes this a tedious job. I only do one car at a time and sometimes only one side. I see the light at the end of the tunnel and it can't come too soon.

        Very cool Matt....!!!
        I am sure you already know this, but, just in case..........when you apply peel and stick vinyl decals, it is a big help to spray a touch of windex on the body where you are about to apply the decal,.......this will give you a few seconds to move/position decal,....blot with a paper towel, and you are good.....lots of folks have been doing this for eons.
