Post Need ideas on number fonts for my car.

Ok guys, I talked to the PCA people and they said that I can have the number I want for the auto-x season so I want to get my numbers put on my car. I dont know what I want them to look like and where I should put them. I guess on the door? Neway, tell me what u think. btw the color of my car is white and the number is 555 !! thanks

knowing you.... probably red haha

I'd use the font Auro-Plain. It's techy and pretty cool. But of course, everyone likes diff fonts!
I have about 1500 fonts. One night we can tool around on my comp and check some out.

Cool

Go the digital route. Get equal sized strips shaped like the segments in a calculator display and then you can make any number or letter you need - great for running out-of-region events where you're number might be taken.

Thumbs up

I downloaded a bazillion fonts only to find that many didn't have numbers in the set... I guess I got what I paid for. (freeware fonts)

But I found one I liked, eventually. Printed out templates and I'm cutting them out of 1'x2' magnetic sheets from Hobby Lobby and then painting them. I'm boring, they're going to be gloss black.

i have a white 99 and put a yellow 8X10 vinyl sticker that is on all the time, then when race comes I put the numbers on black.
Just like Karting...

Here's my car with numbers/letters... I don't remember the exact font that I used, but I'm sure you could find something close.

Hey,
Giulio, your right its going to be Red maybe I will take u up on ur offer because I am really not to sure what to pick. I have like 20 fonts on my pc so I dont have much too pick from here.
Lou, I think I like the subaru 555 numbers, but not to sure how I want it placed. I dont think the angle is easy enough to read and it may cause problems at the auto-x. I think I am going to put the number on the door and the hood. I like the way it looks on the hood
Mike, thats a good Idea but to practical I want to have these numbers on the car using vinyl, so I wont be able to change it. If 555 is taken I gonna get into a fight
Tarmac, why did u say that?? Last time I went they were pretty cool and my dealer has 100000 decals on his white impreza and never had a problem.
El Kabong, thanks for the pic Damn I feel bad for ur poor rear tires

I am thinking the subaru rally 555 numbers in red, what do u guys think?? Thanks

hehe, they were just dirty cause we had to drive through some mud to get to the auto-x. When this picture was taken, the car only had about 5k miles on it.

Anyway, I can't wait to get new tires... The auto-x season starts this weekend in Colorado!! weeeee!!!
