Good place to get Autox numbers and class letters?

Postby M20_fever » Wed Apr 20, 2011 5:18 pm

I finally got my permanent Midwest Counsel HSAX numbers assigned so I need to get some magnets for my car, and vinyl for my windshield. Anyone have any suggestions on vendors? If I go through my vinyl guy its going to come to around $70-80 for magnetic sides and stickers for the windshield, anyone know of a better deal?

Here are the requirements for the numbers:

Each vehicle shall carry an Identification Number, Class and Category letters, Practice Group number and other
marks as required by the Supplemental Regulations, and shall meet the approval of the Chief of Timing and
Scoring. Identification Numbers used shall be restricted to one, two, or three digits. The first digit of a three digit
number may not be zero.
The Identification Number shall be displayed on the front and on both sides of the vehicle so that it is legible.
The class and category the vehicle is competing in shall be displayed on the front of the vehicle. All of these
markings shall be at least 6 inches high with a 1 inch stroke on a contrasting background.


I'll be getting bigger than the minimum just because I think it looks better.

Website doesn't list any pricing, worth stopping by the local store though.

Try your local hobby shop; you'd be surprised at what they carry. My Corolla's old and now lost number kit came from hobby lobby for $32.

Do you have any pics of your corolla with them on? Were they magnetic? I was also thinking about trying to find static clings for the windshield numbers.

Nope. They were magnetic. I haven't been to a Hobby Lobby since 2006, so who knows if they still stock them. I think they were 6" tall.
