    Here is somethin I have been trying to work up the courage to do for 5 years, and finally started last December and just launched at the NHL Heritage Classic today. 3 months of stress and hard work.
    But am very proud of the end results...just need to work on the vehicle graphics

    You're never gonna get sheets of plywood in the back with that monkey taking up all the room.

    Seriously man, that thing is awesome! How can anybody miss that and not be curious enough to hit up the website? Heck, I did it and I know what you do.

    Pat is right about it driving traffic to your website, so I think it's time you seriously proof read the site and fix the dozens or errors glaring out from every page.... just sayin'

    WOW!!!!


    I wasn't sure because you didn't say (or I missed it :covereyes:) so I thought maybe the jesery was your portfolio piece..

    THAT IS A REALLY AMAZING PROJECT!!!!

    well done!

    (I guess "3 months of stress and hard work" would have been a good clue... but by then I was clicking links!!)

    what grade of foam?
    which hardcoat? styrospray?

    I hope you park that inside at night, or you'll be looking for another one real quick.

    Very nice...................

    the monkey is great but how is someone supposed to figure out what you actually do? I think you need to work on the truck vinyl to better communicate what you do.

    At a glance no one can tell what you actually does without looking really hard an reading the fine print. It attracts attention, but you are wasting it by not delivering your message (this is what we do...)

    Yes Website, and NEW truck decals are under constuction. Just that, the Silverback took a little long to do, and I wanted him for the outdoor NHL game being played here this week.
