Thanks for the ideas guys. As for the signature it is not really of any monetary value, more sentimental/promotion. The panel is off of a dirt racing late model that the customer sponsor's. He is wanting to "shine it up a little and protect the signature from any customers that want to rub on it" so he can hang it on the wall of his store. It is just a visual thing to promote the racing and show his sponsorship of the local drivers, so I don't think clearing it (if I can figure out how) would hurt anything. I had thought of asking if the driver would sign it again. If he would I could W&G the current ink and have him sign it with a paint pen .

Also, Ray, on the airbrush, I am looking at the Iwata Eclipse series. I have been told they are exceptional and very user friendly. So far I have found several in the $120-$140 range, so they aren't as expensive as I had expected. Any thoughts on those?

Well Kelly, I have no experience with the Iwata airbrush at at all. I have 2 Iwata paint guns that I'm pleased with...LOL...not that how many Iwata guns helps for giving you information information on their airbrush. I do know the rep for the marketing group that sells Iwata locally. I can give him a call and he's a pretty straight shooter...I trust his judgement and I know him well enough that if there any draw backs he would be upfront with me. I can give him a call tomorrow and let you know if you like.

That's fine if you want too Ray. Again, no big rush, as I am probably looking at the first of the year or possibly later before I buy one, just doing some homework now. The Iwata was recommended by a guy on the SPI site that does custom work on bikes. I know it is the painter, not the gun, but good equipment never hurts anything either

So true Kelly, good equipment doesn't make a painter, it just helps to make him better. I'll give him a call and let you know what he likes and what he doesn't.
