    Three months have come and gone and still no VIN. So I decided to work on another project for the Hellcat garage. This is not a easy process and you need the steady hand of a surgeon!!! For real!!! All you need is a good template from one of the members,plexiglass,Dremel and some cool led lights. Oh and I almost forgot!!! Lots of patience. Here's where I'm at some far without the stand.

    This was just a spare peice of plexiglass that I could try out before I tackled the big sign like my first picture at the beginning of the post. Led lights will be contained in a painted pvc pipe with a switch. Red light will shine brighter in the sign when they are enclosed under the plexiglass. Just wondering what everyone thinks.

    That's bad a$$! I want to make both! What did you use to make the templates? What kind of dremel bit did you use to do the rough surface? I love the Hellcat silhouette. Could I get you to send me your templates if I paid for postage?

    Where did you get the LEDs?

    I got the metal templates from magnummrk on the forum. I'm in the process of trying to have more made at a CNC shop. I'll let u know if I can get some made.

    I got the led rope light at Walmart.. I'm gonna order some led tape lights with a controller off line. So I can change colors on the big sign.

    Even paper templates would be fine. Tape them on, outline, peel off. Thicker paper would be better, but anything like that would work.
