Nice. I really like how everything has its place and given the somewhat tight quarters you clearly thought it through so that every placement has its purpose.

On Saturday we were going to swing over to Holland and then down to KZoo for the obvious. We were really considering taking an additional day and going waaaaay out of our way over to Munson, IN to 3 Floyds, but that may be pushing it. Our livers are already going to be on crutches come Sunday, so scratch that extra day. I do however, want to hit Dark Horse in Marshall on our way back across the state. Thanks again! Sorry for jumping
Ok I am seriously jealous of that road trip and I live around here!!! Excellent choices. I expect a full report.

You should be able to google those terms and come up with something. I got a bunch years ago from a company that makes nameplates and labels (US Nameplate).

If that ends up to be too expensive or difficult to find you could also probably use a vinyl adhesive sheet made for laser and inkjets maybe.
Thanks, I see better now. In fact, the Lexan is very thin and flexible. And yourself, how did you proceed to have that nice end result. Did you paste the labels first on the panel with the Lexan on them (3 different labels ?) and drilled the holes through it ? Is it easy to cut off the labels with the Lexan on it with scissors or cutter ?

I printed the whole thing on one sheet of paper then stuck the lexan on top of that, then put the transfer tape on the back side, then I cut the extra off all four sides with a paper cutter (scissors will cut it too), then stuck the whole thing on the panel, then cut out the holes with an exact knife. Does that make sense?

By the way welcome to HBT!!!
