I think we (me included) over-analyze things. That's a good thing, but I really think either way would look good. I really can't see anybody walking up to the car and saying, "Wow, I really like this car... it looks really nice... oh, wait... OMG... that plate... forget it... I hate this car".

I'm going to do it the #2 way just because of the more available space to do stuff.
Of course not I don't think any of us are saying that. Were just saying if your going to have alot of text it would be best to put it in away that it's easiest to read. The "Mustang" shaker sills are ok because it's just one word. JMO.

Actually, I think it's easier to read if it's the landscape way (#2) - the way Bill said if he HAD to choose.

#1 you have to lean over the front of the car or the side of the car with your head cocked to read it.

#2 you can just stand on the side of the car and read it.

I can't recall a time you've gone with the majority's vote. I think you do it on purpose.

Perhaps subconsciously!

#1 = 2 votes (You and Kyle)
#2 = 2 votes (Me and Bill)

There is no majority, yet!

Just do it Tom. After you get it installed, we'll criticize the heck out of it.

Good luck with the tuning tom. Hope they get it dialed in so you can drop the hammer and see what she'll do!

Can't get to the page from work... will hafta vote later today.

Tom,
I'm not ignoring your questions, I just don't know what I think about it. I haven't specifically seen a car with the HP/TQ numbers plastered on something in the engine bay... My only thing would be if, IF.... IF you changed something, tune, boost lbs... anything it would be instantly obsolete. Maybe that's not a worry but I'd be hesitant to lay down numbers on something that isn't easily replaced/modificed if the numbers change. Does any of that make sense ?

Makes sense to me. I thought something along the same lines.

I see what you're saying, but if I did change something small, I wouldn't go get it dyno'd again. If I didn't get it dyno'd again, I wouldn't need to change the tag.
If I did something major to increase HP (which I doubt), then I can have another tag made since they are relatively cheap (and very easy to replace - just thin double sided tape).

Here's a screen shot from their video that gave me the idea in the first place. I don't want to do something JUST like that, but similar:

Hey Tom
When I had the vette I was looking at etched fuse box covers.
Apparently these are popular with the vette crowd. The can look good if done tastefully. I think Landscape would look the best.

It's a perfect location to put information.

On both vehicles...

Tom, I like the info on the last one George posted.

Attachment 36003

Maybe 'MUSTANG' across the top and a blue oval /GT flanking it.

I've been asked to become a Mod (not TMS, but at another popular forum). Thoughts?
