I don't think it's necessarily a "find" ;D

I did the screen-capture and initial clean-up of the image, took that to a local sign shop to have it cut in vinyl (the only thing I can't do -- oh how I wish I had a vinyl [plotter] decal cutter!), and then applied it to the truck myself.

Here's a bit of trivia: I used the logo from the opening of the new OVA, and discovered a MISTAKE in it! Just in the うる星やつら logo. See if you can spot their error!


Oh. And, I'm not rich. At all. I work as an inspector in a small manufacturing&machining shop. I bring home about $24,000 a year.

WOW!!! Great catch on the truck logo, SDM! I just went out and checked -- there IS a cut-line for the center of the loop in the "ru"; should have been weeded out by the sign shop. I'll get it tomorrow or Wednesday and it'll be right. The star is a little off; a necessity of the way I had the logo cut. I'll live with that.

Even with the little hiccups, you did an excellent job on the logo :icon_mrgreen: Did you just send them the screenshot, or did you have to trace it out into a vector image?

BTW,

DATCHA!

So it is yours. :o
You do know some hater will end up scratching your car now right? :'(
In the mean time, brag about it and go to a few anime conventions. ;D
Love how the plate says "Datcha" too. xD And don't fret about the mistakes, it still looks great. :P

I had printed it out and handed them that; they re-scanned it and performed whatever clean-up they needed.

DATCHA!

As may be expected, "DARLING" was already taken for a custom plate, so I went with the second-most-recognizable catchword from Lum.

U think u could get one made for me =3 ?

I could (the sign shop has the design in their computer now), but there are peculiarities to the way I had it cut that may not work in your application.

There are sign shops everywhere, and they can take almost any image and transfer it to vinyl for application on almost anything you can think of (the technology is astounding). All it takes is money. Check locally.
