[DMCForum] Re: how to make a DeLorean sign...?



Nice idea Eric, it would look cool.

I'll have pics of my sign in about 2 weeks, basically what I've done
is get plexiglass and apply vinyl negative image over it, so that the
letters will allow light to shine through. Sounds crap at the moment,
but wait until you see it, I think you'd be surprised at how good it
looks.

Thanks,
John
