Default Road Runner Express

A few weeks ago I put some example carvings in the truck to show at a possible on site job.

I have been getting great exposure and have been selling them out of the truck.
I need to get some magnetic signs next with my phone# and website.

Cant beat free advertising!

Hi Brian, Magnetic signs would work well but what about some nice carved side racks for the box? I think this would add even more to the advertizing & the carving as well? Beep Beep!
Thanks, Robbin

All the work looks great. But I do love that roadrunner. Wish he were sitting in my yard.

I think Robbin has a good idea with the wood posts. Bob had bought the magnetic squares for the side of his truck. They worked great but when he took them off to wash the truck he noticed significant fading of the paint where the square was not. You could tell right where the sign had been. I don't know if black paint has the same issues or not. His was a 2000 Red Dodge ram...it may have just been cheap paint? The good thing was that it was an extended cab and he was able to put new stickers with his information directly on the glass of the back side window. Eventually the dark spots faded on the door to match the rest of the truck as well.

Just something else to think about...

Thanks for the ideas I may go with a carved sign on the tailgate end with magnetic on the sides.

I don't want to make the sides any higher taking the view of the carvings away.
