HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Proud of your conversion? You need my vinyl sign on your garage wall!

Or on some other place... Like your tool box, trailer, or even the rear hatch! It's about 13" tall and 20" wide.

Only $20! (Plus $6 for shipping) I'll combine shipping and even give you a little discount if you get multiple items (the same items). My PayPal is ivan(at)ephotomotion.com

I also do windshield banners, Porsche signs and more!

I'm not sure what that means... I drew that for Skywalker at work one day when I was bored. I copied that from Greg's drawing... lol it really doesn't matter; it wasnt worth my time getting them made anyway. I've got the file for anyone that wants it....

Yes, Spence was nice enough to send me his file, I was going to have Van make me an emblem. Problem is that I wanted just a small one for the front of the car and since his system is a cutter, he can't do it that small. Still looking for a place to print me small emblem.

Most sign shops can make it small for you, Van's machine might be one that can't cut really small, but there are ones out there that can. Send me the file and I'll ask a couple around here.

Yeah, Fliermike also asked about making it small. The problem is the detail in the horse... When cut-outs get smaller than about 0.1", they tend to come off the release liner (the backing paper) and stick on top or gum up the machine. My machine is a "drag knife" - it's kind of like a small x-acto knife that's mounted in a bearing so it can spin around. But it needs forward motion to "drag" - and really small details don't allow the knife to move forward enough.

I'll look into simplifying the design some (with Spence's permission, of course) to optimize it for smaller cutting. Maybe 5" tall?

How about printing the design on a white backround shield in one piece?

OK, I've spent a few hours with Adobe Illustrator, and by using a different horse image and eliminating "Stuttgart" I've made this. It's about 5" tall and 7" wide.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

(This one has the masking tape on it already - that's why it's not bright black.) Price is $8 each or two for $15.


Here's my color selection:

(There's supposed to be yellow to the right of orange... I also have a light brown, kinda coffee with cream, color.)

I also have 5" Porsche logos ($5 each):

And 13" Porsche logos ($15 each):

Do you used the stock coolant tank? If so, you might like this one:

Or, if you're like me, you'd rather spend your time preparing for the zombie apocalypse.

Is 13" as tall as you can make?
What would it cost to get two of the 20" wide ones and a yellow back ground to put behind one of them?
Is it symmetrical enough that I could put the yellow back ground on a plate glass window, install the black over that and the go to the other side of the glass and install the black there? I'd like to have it show in my office and in the shop bay. I think it would look good. I can go up to 30" wide if you can make it bigger.
Thanks

It's actually 13.5" tall - and that's as tall as I can make with the size vinyl I have. I can use up to 24" wide vinyl, but that would cost an extra $100.

For 3 signs, two black and one yellow perimeter, I'd do that for $75 plus shipping ($6).

OK, after all that work making a small V8 944 shield, I decided to redo the large version. It's the bottom one in the picture below... It's 18.5" wide, but follows the corvette and porsche logos a little better. Unless you request the old version, the new version will be the default.

Van,

I'll take four of the small ones (new version) in black.

It's $20, plus $6 shipping. I can combine other stuff for that shipping price, if you want.
