I'm running in a DE this weekend. The club I'm running with doesn't provide windshield car numbers. I need to provide my own car numbers that must go on each door. That have to be a minimum of 4 inches high. Obviously, magnetic numbers won't work. Does anyone know where I can get these in a hurry? Or, what material they are made of--since I need them by Friday, I might have to fashion something myself. Thanks...

Usually they are made of vinyl. Any local sign shop should be able to cut them for ya. They go on easily, and you can get them off but cant reuse them.

Low tack painters masking tape works in a pinch. I've got vinyl numbers from K&M magnetics:

you can also use contact paper used for shelving (from home depot, etc.). just trace the number and cut it out - very low adhesive, so no residue is left behind. I'd just stick them on each side of the back window anyway.

Static cling vinyl can be purchased from sign shops. Cut out numbers, mist on water from spray bottle, squeege out excess water, sticks to car at 145 mph if put on the night before, and they are reusable. Store on a piece of Plexiglas or Lexan. The body and vinyl have to be clean.

k and d magnetics never returned my phone call.

solotime got right back to me and the numbers were in my hands the next day.....shipping cost more than the numbers of course.....

They are reusable vinyl and work beautifully.

thanks folks!

I have used Solotime numbers now for multiple events over two years and they are still going strong. They held up in the rain and and speeds up to 150+. Good Choice :thumb:

This is not a simple solution - but I wanted something different. I used frisket paper (clear masking material for airbrush people) and painted a section red except for my numbers. The amount of tack is just about right. I put a little clear tape on the leading edge just in case.
