This weekend, we decided it was time (and that we HAD enough time!) to tackle this project :)
So the one on the left was the original. It had holes drilled in it by some previous owner who had installed a latch for a padlock. We've since filled the holes with a metal putty. I've been trying to avoid having to hand-paint it to restore the colors, because I'm just not confident that it will look alright.
Enter the emblem on the right! I found it on EBay! And for only $12.99! It's not tri-color like the original, but I was okay with this!
Then, on one of the sunny, warm days recently, we noticed all of the blue on the new one was super wavy! We looked at it and determined that it was just a vinyl sticker! UGH! I can't put that on my trailer!
So we went and got model paint so I could just do my best to hand-paint the original and hope that people don't look too closely at it!
Except that we got home with the paint and I was taking a look at the new one and noticed that there was a protective cover - OH. MY. GOD. It's not a vinyl sticker, it's actually painted!
So now I have a different decision to make LOL! Which do I use? Was the paint a waste? Or was the new plaque? It's tough being a dumbass ;)
Until next time, <3 Becca
