License Plates

Other than the airstream store, where can I buy a nice Airstream license plate for the front of my truck?

Ant airbrush artist can do it. Take a digital photo to any sign shop. They can put it on a blank license plate. They can also put writing or anything you want. Some may give you a hard time if you want them to put on a copywrited photo or emblem. just edit the copywrite out at home before bringing in your "own artwork" to avoid this.

I was able to make a Licence Plate that looked so real from 5 old plates that the state of CO let me use it! It will be going on my 1962 GT when she is done!

It did take some time looking for the old plates... cutting ... welding... and polishing the raised letters and numbers... but it looks better than any other plate out there!

What would you like to know? It took 10 hours of work to do! I guess my goal was that the end result was for it to look "real" and pass for a "real" plate, I had know idea that it would of turned out so well and it could be used! I will say that old plates are made from thicker material than plates of today, so I believe that it would be a slim chance to use today's plates! I would say that someone would have to have metal, welding, paint, and polishing skills to pull it off! Something that I pride myself on at the Vinstream Shop!
