Magnetic Numbers

Post by rx71985 »

Where is the best place around the Roanoke or New River Valley to get some numbers? I do not need anything special Just 4 white numbers and a small CSP. I am willing to make my own as well if I can find a good place for magnetic stock. I am getting tired of the painters tape.

Go on Amazon and buy a bulk roll of magnetic material. I usually buy it 20 feet at a time. Make sure you buy the thickest mil you can find. It's always worked good for me even at VIR.

Thanks, I just checked it out. Do you remember the brand or vender that you bought from? I know some are better than others, my door magnets used to fly off my company truck on the highway all the time.

Awesome, that what I was thinking. The thicker 60 mil probably would not flex as much and the thinner 20 something does not have enough guts to hold on. I need to wash my wife's Cruze, but I can not help but but laugh at the fact that it sits in an elementary school parking lot every day with ghost number 38 on the doors from VIR.
