So here is the backside patch.... I need to buck the two unfilled holes and will be doing that next week. My bucking equipment is in central New York being used to get RoverOwner back on the road.

A hand making the piece sign was what I was thinking.

Whew, glad you got the right finger pointing - another finger and that would have to be edited out of the post.....

I like 'em both, Frank. My axles are shot, too. I still think you should have gone with the shape of the state of Maryland.

WOW - seriously, when I opened this thread, I dunno, thought it was about gardening questions... didn't think anything else! : )

Frank - opened the blog, just wondering how you did it - HAND SHEARS!! Gee, I got some of these.. gotta show you the hole on the side of the TW that I need to cover... the state of Washington may just work!

Knowing my "artistic" skills though... I'll end up with Delaware.... sigh...

I love the covers!

Hey Marc, Frank is awesome at the custom patches. Here's a pic from my blog of the state of Texas patch that he graciously made for me. It will eventually cover a large hole in the front door that a PO (the one before Terry) put in the trailer, because apparently he had a big brass knocker attached to the front!

And here I was thinking I was so original! Sometimes I wish I lived in a square state.

Frank-- one question: Won't you need to take the door apart to buck those rivets?

That'll be an interesting blog post...

I think he should just glop some vulkem into the holes and around the entire perimeter of the patch...better yet...SILICONE.

Let's see... California.. rivet locations... oh, I get it, all the mission sites of California! Too bad all the filiform is not just on the "west coast." It could be the ocean. : )

I like it - state art!

That does it, I think I'll make Washington - OR, maybe I'll make one of those silhouettes of Lewis and Clark pointing to the ocean.....

how about a rain drop, it will blend in while you have your 11 months of rain.

HA! Well, it would be horizontal, as the hold (actually a rip) is longer horizontally than vertically.

If I lived in Idaho.. a potato would work...
