License Plate Art

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

License Plate Art

Postby Brandon Webb » Sun Mar 03, 2013 12:31 pm

Been working on this for about a year rounding up plates. Harder than you'd think trying to not have the same color plates touching bordering states. I also only used raised letter stamped plates not the newer printed on plates so it cost a lot more than it should have.

Alaska and Hawaii shouldn't be difficult :lol: but I bet you're right Missouri and Tennessee took some thought to work out. (Both touch eight other states)

That is a very impressive work of art! Good job!

Nice job, I bet you wish those New England states had been a little bigger too. :D

Wait a minute............ where's Delaware?
I think I see a hole where Delaware should be. Is that because Delaware has those goofy flat plates if I remember correctly. (Never did trust a state where they only needed five digits to give everybody a plate and the prisoners weren't strong enough to punch the numbers.) :lol: :wink:

Hey what's wrong with 5 digits?? I have one with 4 numbers and the other is 2 letters and 3 numbers (my initials). RI does have 6 numbers now.
:roll:
That is pretty dang awesome Brandon. Nice work! But I think the iceberg (or wildfire) is still bigger than the smallest state with the longest name :roll: .
