My Texas 68 plates are starting to show their age. Any suggestions on repainting the tag, or a place to have it done. One site wanted $100.00 to paint my plates. That was for one plate. Plus shipping. I think I can do it myself for much less. They are in pretty good shape, but since I repainted the car, I was wanting the plates to look good too.
Vette(s): #1 *1980 White, Red interior 14,000 mile
#2 *1980 Red, Oyster interior 93,000 miles Resto project car, rebuilt to 383 stroker
Rich, I have done a few real old plates, the old long ones.
Not really that hard, find the closest base color and paint the whole plate. then get a new sponge like you would use around the house. cut it in like one inch square pieces. Put the color for the numbers and or letters on a paperplate, dip the spong factory flat edge into the paint, dab it on some white plain paper so its not drippin off. Then carefully start dabbing the raised number areas and edgeing use light mutiple coats letting it tack up between coats. Take your time and they will look great. Good Luck
