Finished my under hood enhancement profect. Cut the letters out of 1/4" aluminum and mounted them with screws from the backside of the insulator panel. One of the joys of being retired is having the time to work on SSR projects.

I'm assuming you laid them out by hand, how large are the letters? :cool

Thank you!

Thank you all. The SSR is already embossed in the underhood insulator. I made templates out of thin cardboard and then transferred them to 1/4" aluminum. I used a hacksaw, drill press and file to cut them out. Time consuming but worth it I think.

I really appreciate all the comments on my projects. They have all been positive. So far as going into production, I have thought about it, but I have done all of them in my garage workshop. They have all been a lot of hand work and labor intensive and would be cost prohibitive to try to do any great quantity of them. To make it worthwhile I would have to charge too much because I would have to spend too much time in the workshop and I wouldn't have time to enjoy my retirement doing other things I enjoy like traveling and cruising around in Ole Yeller. As always though I will continue to share my ideas and am always willing to help others in any way I can who wish to do these projects themselves. Again, thanks to all for their comments.
