Yep right through that's what takes some extra time tagging the centres of letters like O and D and R etc.

Dan how long does it take you to draw around a jpeg?

Cye,
All depends on how much detail you got and how precise you want it really. If you ever wanted just a bog standard (and very square) font we have one already set up with all the tags in. Otherwise I suppose you are looking at around an hour ish. Its a perfect friday morning job to just kill the time!

Don't know if it's any use but the shop next door to mine ( TT Graphics and signs in Addlestone) has just installed a "Gerber" CNC mill

He can work from any pic, cad drawing, or basic plan.

He owes me a few favours and has promised that if you mention "Foolish" at "Boatmad" you will get a very good deal ( ask for Ian )

Just made me a new "Dash" to incorperate GPS etc in brushed aluminium ( very impressed)

stickers ( where "Black" is not "Halftone" - sorry "C. Chaos")
full wrap vehicle ( boat ) graphics., etc..etc...

I have all the gerber Specific Software & the industry stadard AI & Signlab packages.

Thats great if the forum members have a contact who can print large format stuff in decent quality. We should send him the boatmad logo in photoshop and ask him to do it with solid black!

Slim your gonna love your control shifters now.
Water pick up for the bow tank, water dump for the bow tank, & gear shift will be to the right of the driver seat in a custom panel with new shifters similar to the Bernico.
Made a cardboard cut out yesterday with the seats in place, can't wait to see it my self.
Need to draw it tho haven't got around to that yet.
Will look similar to this but of course with the badboy logo in the shifters.

That's usually because I'm busy and you take about an hour in your round about way to discribe them.
But as I'm sat down doing some drawings you have my undivded attention.

So fire away.
