whats a ZZD

We named our project car ZZD it stands for Zig Zag and Drag. We wanted to build a hot rod that was an all around fun car to drive as well as look good.

The posts on the backside will definately add to the raw stock thickness , and add to machine time. Perhaps locating a threaded boss behind the thickened letters, and use a screw/loctite from the backside would be cheaper/easier.

I'd lose the studs all together and apply it with an adhesive. Thats how they are all attached today.

GMW .....The Posts on the back push into tappered nylon sleves that are mounted in the ground effects. This is the stock method for installation. But since we will have so much invested in them we may also use your idea of the adhesive just to make sure they don't walk away.

We altered the font a little bit and went ahead and cut a couple today.
Here are a couple of pics as machined


They took about 2 hours each to machine.

We got a little anxious to see what they would look like with a black background so we sprayed some black primer on them and wiped off the face of the lettering.

Here is what that looks like.



All suggestions on how to finish them for real welcome.
