    Alright, this autoX season, i am going to do something a little more classy then using paper plates with #'s on them

    I want to go something a little less permant then vinal so gabe said he could make a magnetic number plate for me (like a big refigirator magnet.) Here is what i was thinking, tell me what you think. I am not too sure of the color so if you have suggestions i am all ears. The thing is going to have a ten inch diameter and is going on my white sol

    For some reason it title the poll wrong, it should be "you like?"
    Kinda big so i just linked it

    If you say no, please say why

    I like it, but you could do better with a deeper red if you want that color.

    looks nice. subtle yet noticeable. AND you can turn it upside down for a 61 (which was one of your goals I believe) :spin:

    That looks like a sweet idea. Is the orangish color trying to match a specific color on your car? If not, I think that a little deeper red would look better.

    BTW, go with the all color one, not the one where the numbers are black.

    I will try. Probally have to use Bold or something like that. There are not that many fonts that look the same right side up and upside down. Now i just need gabe to post and see his opinion and estiment on price

    i see this done a lot at AutoX around here ... standard magnets (like used for contractors signs on trucks n stuff) will hold up.... it is very importand to make sure that the magnet surface stays VERY CLEAN and clean the aea of the car (windex works good) before you put them on... get something to keep the numbers in so they will not get dirty when not on the car....

    i would suggest checking with the local autoX peoples before settling on a number though... or just get the white part as a backround and get 3 or 4 numbers you can swap around (6/9 1/7 8/3[just cut it]) that will give you more flexability :)

    i tryed to pick some #'s that people would not normally pick, true if i did 69, i would be using 96 all the time but 61 is kinda an odd ball #. I just dont like all of those cars that have 49305 diffrent stickers all over them, that takes away from the sleeper look on the street.

    You can't flip 69 over to make 96... you'd have to have detachable numbers. Why not just go with a thin circle with some super strong magnetic numbers to place on top? That way you can get all the numbers and make whatever you want.
