|This will take sometime to complete but here is the first few words.
Way back when, I wanted to change my grille to something different so I in 2012, I ordered EB Bronco Grille Lettering, with the shiny inserts. Made a plate for mounting the letters and then mounted it to the OEM Grille.
Picture - EB Lettering for Ranger Grille
I liked it BUT it wasn't exactly what I was thinking I wanted.Fast forward to 2018... !
I decided I wanted some larger letters on the grille. I looked on line, found all kinds of letters, and decided on 1/2" thick Letters in the size I want to fit my Grille. Only problem, there was a look I wanted in the characters but couldn't find any fonts on-line that would work.
Enters a a beautiful young woman, who just happen to be a Graphics Designer... AND related to me. She took the Ranger Font, changed things a little to fit my ideas and her creative license, and ended up with a nice looking "F O R D", at least I think so, and it fit what I was thinking I wanted. That works... right ?
The attached photo shows the Ranger Font with the letters closed in, makes for a easier mounted character, and I think a better looking letter.The tube Grille is new too, Black S/S Square Tube and should make the RED Letter stand out !
Ordering color RED ! Lettering, painted, in my letter size, will be around $50, + shipping. Not cheap but less than the waste I will have trying to get the letter to look better.
Thinking of putting some sort of light panels on the rear of each letter, don't want a lot of light, not sure the effect but may not bother.
Will post again when the RED Letters are here.
