Can anyone give me a recommendation for a vendor for Stencils. I am putting the final touches on my jeep and the next step is the paint job and the Military stenciling. I know Kaiser Willys have them, and I also spoke with a Larsen fellow on another website. I want them cut with my sequence of numbers and Larsen quoted $90. I don't know if that is good or bad. I also questioned the lettering size. It seems the Technical Bulletin calls for 3" lettering on the Hood and 2" on the bumpers, if I read it right, but Larsen wanted to give me all 2" at first.

Because the hood on the Jeeps are a lot smaller than the big trucks, the military allowed them to be done in 2" so that they fit better. Especially with the older 50's eight digit reg.#s that were longer than the short one used in the 60's.
