The original Bantam BT3-C dataplate gets a facelift (or a mask, depending on how you look at it). The original dataplate was still on the trailer, but half-painted over and quite faded.
A search for reproduction dataplates found that they’re available for the military versions of these trailers, but not for the BT3-C civilian version. So I worked with Frank Sanborn - of Sanborn Signcrafters in Charlotte MI - to create a decal that overlays the original dataplate. It has a window to allow the original stamped serial number to show through. Probably not the approach to win shows with, but it passes the “does it look good from 5-feet” test quite nicely.
