Ah, yes Vince, I recalled reading they were airbrushed, missed the reply about them being stickers.

Hi guys
I didn’t mean to confuse everyone on the louvers.
A friend of mine has a sign shop, he lettered my 70 Chevy pick-up. I had him do the hood for me.
They are vinyl. Any sign shop should be able to do the same. Sorry for the confusion. Yes I am able to paint them but the computer can get them more uniform looking. They set me back $ 125.00 for the louvers and the gages.
To clear up your thoughts on the rivets, they are all glued in. I drilled and countersunk the holes by hand. The hinges are 1/4 in. Dowel rod cut in half and glued down. Then painted to match the radiator.

No
I guessed that they were airbrushed on by Dan, before he told us he had them mad as vinyl stickers (decals as we would call them here in Canada)
They are great looking, and will fool anyone from a distance........it was the light reflection that alerted me.

We use a lot of such smoke and mirrors in the sign business.
They painted the airplane. I decaled the floats.

Oh yeah, that's right, you are the wrapper aren't you Dave. Almost forgot
how you covered your kart. You never went into a lot of detail of how you
did it, but I was imagining in my mind a type of shrink wrap? Do you do
your own printing or have it done or work for someone with a sign business?

Love those turbines, tiny and light engines but BIG horses. A couple of guy were
trying them in the aerobatic planes. They take a while for them to spool up though
compared to a recip engine.

Sorry. Lost track of this
I have my own signage and graphics installation business. I used to be more involved in design and production but not much these days. Yep. Turbine lag is a bad match for sport acrobatics alright. You might even get a compressor stall out of just some sportsman class stuff. Great for hauling people and crap around with though.

Working in the shop today, here is some pics of how I did the rivets, also got the exhaust finished and mounted. I glued a rivet to a broken drill bit and used it to test each countersink, then glued in the rivets
