The days or hours never drag out when I am working on large truck signage jobs like this Freightliner and Kenworth, actually the time seems to fly by with the radio on and our Gippsland signshop is bathed in sunlight. My work is just so rewarding and once again the best bit is when after the paint brushes have been cleaned, oiled and packed away and I then get to watch the customers smiles and reactions when they return to see the end result. John and Dave the owner of these two cabovers did just that, both were very happy indeed.
As with all modern truck signage nowadays there can be a mixture of materials used for different results that the owner requests. I can used a high grade graphics material for the truck door lettering and the sleeper box top lettering etc and then I hand paint the pinstriping, lines and any scroll work onto the cabin the traditional way by brush as I have done with both of these truck shown here.
If working on signage that is to go on a veteran or restored vintage truck etc. I would only hand paint the lettering or door signs, this suits the era of the vehicle and the end result is always very nice and traditional looking – Cheers Grant Fowler
