    I think it's a custom modified font.

    I did that once, for a ford tailgate. You need to trace a pattern, job should be worth $150 min. If he doesn't want to spend that much, there's no helping him.

    ok..i was thinking..to do it with vinyl...i would have to get it precise in measurment..and it might be a little rough to put it on... and i was going to take a picture of it and trace it..scan it..then vectorize it..

    Paint it is the best way to do it.

    If you paint it.... it will take you about 15 minutes and a thimble full of paint.

    -Or-

    You could just put the vinyl on it and carefully cut it with a sharp knife and be sure not to cut into the paint. The clear won't matter, but don't go deep into the paint. 30 minutes..... tops.


    This is really considered a 'Quick-Fix' for most shops. Shouldn't go much over $65. unless you have a shop minimum.

    I did a corvette front plate cover once in Chrome, it was a pain in the arse. I'd just paint it and be done. get out the airbrush and put a couple little high lights and make it look sharp. Then you could get $100.00 easy
