I feel like I can field that question - As a child of the age where it was cool to announce to the whole world that you were driving a honda via windshield banner.

Sign shops will make you one off custom stickers for fairly cheap - depending on the level of work they have to put into the graphic.

They generally have a book of fonts, you tell them what you want and they will knock up an image - off to the CNC vynal cutter and a couple min later you've got yourself a custom sticker.

The last time I did it (probably around 1999) it cost me $30 for a much larger one (and I used their font book)

If you wanted to do something like this I would search "signs" in the yellow pages

details details details....

i reinstalled the original shelf just to get an idea of how it looks. I really like it, so I'm planning on redoing it to match the rest of the countertops... whenever the laminate comes in! It was back-ordered... puts me off another week, so I'll finish up details in the meantime.

The new shelf will probably have a birch front, with a laminate shelf (in red) depending on how it looks.

I also have the first 2 windows trimmed out with aluminum extrusion. It's a little tougher to work with than flat stuff, but looks pretty sharp, as long as the edges line up! Here's a few pics of the front window.

The side window has a problem area, because of the way the fridge sits in there, the blinds will have to be trimmed to work around the countertop edge. I'm going to wait to do any snipping until I have the countertops secured in, to avoid any unnecessary obscenities.

ha!

I also added the bottom pieces to snug them up against the wall.

I love the look of aluminum blinds on an aluminum trailer... even from the outside! Very modern!

Next up, FINALLY swapping the axle. I just picked up the new shackles today. I'll need a hand, so it might have to wait until the weekend after next. By then, HOPEFULLY the laminate will be in as well, and I can finally add some color to this thing!
