Jerry Hoerres, River Bottom Art and Sign, Melrose, Wisconsin “A couple years ago I read an article in SignCraft,” says Jerry Hoerres, “about making lettering look old by rubbing sand in it when it was nearly dry. I used that technique on our truck—and now everyone thinks the lettering is as old as the old shop truck.”

Ian Langfield, Legend Signs, Canberra, Australia Ian Langfield repaints his vintage pickup every year. “The paint color for 2016,” says Ian, “is chameleon red to blue to purple glass flake over a black base. The lettering is chameleon finish bronze to magenta with a beveled airbrush effect and a pale purple outline with a mixed orange for the script to not overpower the main copy. The tailgate is still raised lettering.”
