    Short story, then I will get back to the shop. Had a pinstriper buddy stripe "NamVet 67-68 ,one half tall letters, on the rear panel of my hotrod. Not to brag, but just on a whim. I am still surprised how many guys comment on this. Many were there. a couple have even said thanks for me going so maybe they didnt have to. I enjoy every comment.
