    Thanks guys!

  4. peters dandenong,

  8. Any signwriter with a vinyl cutting machine will be able to cut some for you. Probably while you wait.

  11. Or.. go to officeworks and buy a roll of black contact, use your computer to print out your numbers in Arial bold mt in about 500 point (measure to ensure the size meets gcr's) then use that as the stencil for cutting out the contact.. Can of white spray (for 600cc) for the background..

  12. I was in at AMX Tullamarine this arvo on another matter and a box labelled 'race numbers' caught my attention for no reason. Now I know the reason- give them a call.

  16. Thanks again guys,

    Hopefully this thread will come in handy another time for someone else if the need arises.

    If my numbers don't come in tomorrow, no stress, I'll just tape up some numbers haha

  17. Don't forget to make sure your background and letter colours are correct for the class your running in if applicable.

  18. Or any gokart shop sell them as well and will have the backing stickers.

  19. Marine shops also have numbers for boat rego. May not be the correct font, but just take the scissors to them and round of the corners.
