PAINT STENCILS
CUSTOM MADE LETTERING FOR USA NUMBER ON YOUR HOOD

As with the dataplates, the finished restoration project often relies on the correctness of "small" details. This is also true of the painting of the USA numbers. Looking at USA numbers painted on jeeps today, you find as many variations as used in WWII . All sort of lettering styles are used. As from start of production : When Jeeps left the factory they were lined up outside and the numbers were painted in the sequence of how they were parked. The numbers on the hood were painted in a blue drab colour.  At the beginning of 1945 this was changed to white, but still only in one factory * style. 

Using original WWII Jeep pictures and remains of numbers under old paint I have been able to redraw these correct factory fonts for Willys and Ford USA numbers. Both manufacturers had a unique font design which can't be found as a ready made computer lettering. 

You can order your number, custom made for your Jeep.

* Of course at any time during the WWII, once in the hands of the motor pool or field units, every imaginable style of white lettering seems to have been used.


NEW STYLE!


My factory fonts stencils (and other stencils ofcource) are custom made for you.  When I make the stencils I use from my large picture files a wartime picture to get the design and composition of your USA number as close as possible to the original USA number used in your serial number range and make of Jeep. A high quality picture of this example will be add with your order.
Often when people have finished their restoration they need correct number stencils and stars. I have specialized in factory stencils and field applied stencils and after you have placed your order I can on request make a virtual picture how the stencils will look like on your Jeep and Trailer and send this picture by e-mail for your approval.
Because you want to put the stencil and stars correctly on your Jeep and Trailer this is very helpfull. An high quality color example picture will be add with your order.
