Dataplate Restoration

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.

I’ve run out of these decals, if you’re in need of some contact Frank directly at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
