Looks great! Those old signs are made of some good aluminum. I made a front engine mount plate for a SBC drag car out of some one time. Hard as heck to bend, so it was plenty stiff for the mount plate, engine never moved an inch. Painted the yellow side black, left the new front bare.

Uck Oh, now everybody will be stealing highway signs to make stuff out of!

What a great project> I really like the look of the old macks. I remember a gravel truck operator had a few of those B61 as body jobs. Iconic!
