Shelby signature


Recommended Posts

Does anyone make a 1/24 or1/25 white decal of Shelby's signature as often seen on the dashboard of Cobras? I know it's probably a licensing no-no issue, but I thought I'd ask as I don;t have access to an ALPS printer. John

Here is one from a SAAC letter so indirectly I paid for it.  Kopec made a living off of promoting Chelsey and his cars.  Most fo the signatures on car parts are written with a silver sharpie.  Lots of images on the web.

Jack,

Contact John Hagen.  He is one of my friends from the Alps printer group, and he does custom decals.  His email address is sprinthag@yahoo.com .  Tell him Peteski sent you.

Maybe try printing on white decal paper, making a black area with the signature left in white?  The black decal could be applied where you want the signature, with the surrounding area painted to match.

This is a great idea.

If you use white decal paper and print black on it remember to take a black Sharpie (or another permanent marker) and color the edges of the decal (before placing it in water).  If you don't do that, the white edges of the paper will be visible once the decal is applied.
