Default Throwback idea

I was really bored and was trying to think of a way to have an old school idea meet a sleek look so I thought of this.. About 10-12' black diamond plate letters spelling out 'ford'. Am I wrong to think the font wouldn't look very good

It'll be kind of hard to drive with 10 to 12 foot letters on the front of your truck!

Personally, I prefer a small oval.

botom line, its YOUR truck and if you think it will look good, DO IT. I personally dont think it will look bad, but I am also not sure if its something I would do either. I am more of a clean shaven emblem-less type of guy myself.

Do it. I think it could look legit if done right.

Not trying to sound like jerk or ***** but if you don't have anything creative to add to a thread don't comment.

unfortunately, there is no sarcasm font. he was pickin on the FNG about an error for using a ' (aka feet) instead of a " (aka inches), I saw an error in his comment, so I picked on him as well.
I doubt there was any cruel intent, and it was a pretty harmless comment. I have seen A LOT worse. if his comment really bothered you that much you are probably not going to like it here. I'm not saying how people treat others on here is right, I am just saying how it is.

Wow, I'd hate to see what you could accomplish if you put some effort into it! <- For the internet impaired, please note winking smiley that designates humorus comment.

MPETE obviously is much smarter than I, since he was able to figure out which end of the truck you were talking about.
I feel I contributed in that you asked for an opinion and I stated it (very kindly, I might add). At this point most folks would say "sorry if it wasn't what you wanted to hear", but I prefer not to lie about stuff.
