I have been working with a fabricator/supplier to try to get the registration numbers available to everybody in the Moomba font in Chrome color. I told several of you privately that I thought this would be forthcoming and end up being a nice deal. I think it is and am happy so far with how things have gone.

The difficulty with the Masque font is that it did not have numbers and I have still never seen a TTF file that has them. But JMVotto was kind enough to share a couple of other file types and they were able to use one of them. So these should be available now and I'll be posting pics of mine as soon as they get here; my order went in today.

The cost is $18.50 for single color chrome and includes both sides. Shipping was about $8 for priority mail so the total was around $26.50. (Two colors or effects are a little more but available.)

The site is: http://www.signspecialist.com/lettering/boatnumbers.html

My contact is James and he has been extremely patient and helpful. I'm sure you can e-mail him at the site and get an order in now but I have asked him for specific instructions about how to place an order. I'll post his instructions as soon as I get them. In the meantime, if you are in a hurry, I think subject "moombachrome" is a good start if you e-mail him. I also think all the other colors will be available as well.

So, I'll post up pics as soon as I receive them-- out of the box and then installed so you know what you are getting. This should be a nice deal and available for everyone that wants them.

EDIT: Pic is now available in post #12 below.

Hey Pat, I'd be interested in these now that they have the numbers figured out. I tapped one of my current 3D Chrome reg # (not Masque font) with the buffer last fall and polished the chrome off where it hit... opps

From James, mail@signspecialist.com:

You can have them email me here or they can choose any font but in the customer comment box on the last page they type in Moomba font and we will design it in that for them.

Thanks,James

Again, I'll post pics as soon as I get these.

It's worked out. They came in yesterday. They look great. They are just your basic registration numbers but they are in the masque font and chrome. Very cool looking. I'd post a pic but with the transfer paper on them you can't tell anything. As soon as I get them installed-- maybe over the weekend-- I'll try to post.

OK, here's a pic. I actually mangled the first letter a little pushing with the squeegee. I shouldn't be so paranoid about air bubbles but I was. Anyway, the chrome came out very nice. Hard to get a pic in the garage though b/c the light is so bad in there. I'm very happy with the reg. numbers overall.

They threw in a little 4-5 in. wide squeegee. It was all you need. Very easy to put these on. Came in a single sheet x 2 so application was a piece of cake.
