    One of my good friends works as a trucker, so she travels across the country all the time. Knowing that I'm a huge transfan, she wanted to get me a TF-related item that I didn't already have.

    She found a store at the West Edmonton Mall that makes custom airbrushed plates and had this done for me:

    Needless to say I was in awe when I saw it:

    It's hard to see in the pics, but the paint is extremely glossy and the colors are rich:

    Now I'm faced with the dilemma of either putting in on my car, or displaying it inside, where I know it'll stay in good condition. Canadian winters will eventually damage the plate and I don't want that to happen!

    Awesome colors. If you put on your car it will get all the road grime and get all messed up and god forbid, knock on wood if you got in accident.

    Man that's a really cool gift!

    I know what you mean about the Canadian winters so ya I would have to say keep it indoors for now. But over the summer when it's nice out I would stick that on when you go for a drive sometime :D

    Wait, you're allowed to only have one plate in Alberta? Dammit, in Ontario if you don't have front and back, you get a ticket.

    I think its just simply called Decals and Signs or something, I can't remember the name right now but its beside a little import store where you can get some binaltech usually for decent prices, but not much of a selection

    It's called an abbreviation. They're quite popular, you know.

    When I first read the thread title I thought perhaps you got another phone call from Omega Knight.

    Display on the car, but spray it with a few coats of enamel protectant. I'm sure it'd be fine. And if it got damaged or whatever - it's an unlicensed airbrush job that can be replicated.

    And also, change the topic to "Festivus Present" or "Sparkle Season Present." :)

    Beautiful piece! It'd look great on a car, so I hope you'll find the best way to keep it in a good condition :)

    People like abbreviations.

    When you send out some mail, do you write PA or Pennsylvania? TX or Texas? ON or Ontario? Just a thought...
