Plexiglass Sign

As promised,

The sign is held up with suction cups

Now that's the first time I have ever seen it done this way! Neat!

I'll be curious how it holds up in a storm or in windy conditions. You would think that the wind getting behind plastic might pull off the suction cups.

Wind

The suction cups are designed to "pull" to the surface by lowering the hook into position. This creates a suction so strong that I cannot get it off by hand. You literally have to release the suction by raising the hook.

If you are real concerned with it, just remove the sign at the same time you are lowering your awnings. It removes with ease, no screw or rivets.

I see! We use those type of suction hooks in the shower stall in the bathroom. Holds wet towels and other wet things very well.

Got my "Big Red Numbers" on the other day. I got a sign shop to make them up just like Pahaska did and they went on with ease! My Overlander is polished so when and if I decide to pull them off it shouldn't be a big deal, peel them off and touch up the skin.

(Yes, this was a sorry excuse to post a pic, hadn't done it in so long, just wanted to see if I stil had the ability)

Chas

BTW, they use a strange font, my sign lady looked for a while to get them close, the 7 especially, the 5 is a little different as well, mine is close enough though. What are they, Navy issue?

Anyone tried static cling

I have been thinking about having a set of WBCCI #s made up on static cling plastic. I am curious if anyone has tried this. I need to play around with a small piece and see if it will adhere to the skin of the Bambi sufficiently at least for use while parked. I already have "branded" our Bambi, but it stays in covered parking so I am sure that I could remove the letters at this point with no underlying damage. We really debated about putting those #s on.

Yep I am aware of someone who tried this. At first glance it seemed to work ok. Once the wind came up a corner started to lift and it just peeled right off.

That polish job looks great. Plain to see you have been working on her since we last met at Pedernales Falls.

Yup, Chas did a great job, looks outstanding.
I tried to help him, but he would never answer my calls.

yeah right!!

Yes Peter,

I saw where you had been calling and calling, I just didn't want to get the phone all blackened up! Way too much fun and had to keep it all to myself ! You did say you have a cyclo, right? I may need some help here on the final stages.

I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if we could all get together and gang up on polishing each others Airstream? I figure 8 or 10 people could strip and polish one in a day or so, then move on to the next and the next. We'd have to be close enough to each other, kinda like an Amish barn build or something?

Chas

Sounds like the glider-stripping parties that our soaring club used to throw. Lots of area to strip on a 2-place glider wings and tail. We would have up to 20 folks at once working on a ship. We would all break for a BBQ lunch and be done by the end of the day.
