I felt so bad about the scratch I created that I had to do something nice for Anna, the guilt has been tremendous... A song just came on the Itunes I am listening to and it it could not be more fitting... John Prine, 'That's the Way the World Goes Round'...
I know a guy that's got a lot to lose.
He's a pretty nice fellow but he's kind of confused.
He's got muscles in his head that ain't never been used.
Thinks he own half of this town.
Starts drinking heavy, gets a big red nose.
Beats his old lady with a rubber hose,
then he takes her out to dinner and buys her new clothes.
That's the way that the world goes 'round.
So just like the fella in the song, I bought my old lady some new clothes.
New numbers always makes a lady that much more elegant. The last set of lettering were too thin and were easily lost in the reflections. I thought she needed something better.
I know I will get lots of questions on how I did that, so here it goes in advance. The decal comes in a sheet like this. I went to Fastsigns, and Angel asked me what I wanted it to say, how big, what font, and what color. They lay it out and 24 hours later you receive a sheet that looks like this. I then cut it apart into lines.
The next thing is to position it exactly where you want it to be. Tape is used at the center of the line to hold it in place.
Next, you peel back half of the back sheet and tear it off. Slowly you rub it into place from the center.
Then you peal back the other side and apply that. The last thing is to remove the cover sheet.
And then you have something that looks like this....
NY Skyline - I dont recognize it anymore. The Empire State is in there ...
