Autocross numbers?

Post by captainslow » Thu Mar 25, 2010 8:23 pm

Do any of you have any recs for sites/places that sell magnetic numbers that aren't insanely expensive? I'd like to pay less than $100 for two sets (letters + numbers on each side). Thanks! :drive:

I looked around before an HPDE a couple years ago and was amazed at how expensive they are. I even tried to get magnetic film and make my own, but that stuff is expensive too! :x

Are you looking for magnetic or would vinyl do? DCAWD has a vinyl specialist who would probably give you a good deal :) He's name is Scott.... and I can't remember his screen name, damn it! I'll find it!

Found his e-mail: scottmerker @ gmale (yes, I spelled it wrong on purpose b/c of SPAM) :)

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

For magnetic you can look at SSC tint. The owner runs with and helps sponsor the local AI autocross series.
http://ssc-tint.com/numbers.html

What events are you planning on running this year?

Or you can buy a roll of magnetic sheeting from a craft store and make ones that look like this. The vent covers you can get at lowes/HDR/Wal-mart are a lot thinner and do not stay on as well.

google. it rocks.
those belong on a sign, not a car.

i caved though late last night and bought them from izoomgraphics.com. they had the most reasonable prices of the sites i searched. thank you though for your recommendations. i can't post on forums at work, so i couldn't reply earlier.
