Looking for advice from anyone who has done this: Has anyone chosen to paint the "Ford" logo on their radiator shell? Or does anyone know of a quality decal available that would closely match the size of the logo?
I made an attempt at hand-painting the logo in yellow (same color as my wheels), but my hand isn't steady enough anymore for that to work well.
I suppose I could try to find a sign painter locally that does hand-work, but it seems that practice may have all but disappeared with computer graphics so prevalent in the graphic arts industry now.
My other option would be to have a graphic arts shop create a decal that matches the logo, Not sure if any copyright or trademark issues would prevent that.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
Dave, I can't say I've ever seen a T radiator shell with the raised logo, painted, but to each his own. 26-27's have the logo stamped into (depressed) into the shell. If your hand isn't steady enough for a brush, have you considered a paint pencil like wrecking yards use to mark parts with; or putting a small, thin coat of paint on a very flat surface and gently lowering the shell with the logo area onto the thin coating of paint? if you mess up, have some paint thinner or solvent handy.
Dave I have seen it done but it is very tricky to get it right I would get a very fine brush to do it with, good luck
Maybe you can find someone who does pinstriping.
There are several of those guys around here.
Mine was painted when I got it along with the logo on the running boards.
