    Default Maybe, or rather PROBABLY not a DIY topic ...

    My son made this for me for Father's Day. I downloaded pics from my camera today and it was there so I figured I would share it with my CRO family knowing you guys and gals would appreciate this sort of thing.

    He bought the emblem, and mounted it onto a piece of diamond plate I had laying around. He painted the plate glossy black, bought a black plastic frame and clear license plate cover from Advance Auto, and mounted it on the car as a Daddy Day gift.

    He's really proud of it and so am I- of him, and not just for this --- but that's another "thread".

    Thanks, Steve- and it did come out nice. Me being the anal I am, I wouldn't have it on the car if it wasn't done right.

    Ah, who am I kidding ... if my son did it for me, on the car it goes. You gotta see some of my boys' "art" I've had plastered on my cars throughout the years ... But I am glad this came out good ...

    Thanks GG. He was proud he didn't break a single jig saw blade while cutting the diamond plate. He's 14.

    Thats cool!!! Very neatly done also. If he's doing that kind of work at 14, I can't imagine what he will be doing at 20. You got to be proud of him. He

    Thanks, Al- and yes, very proud. He's an all around good kid. If he can just get his swing a little faster when he's up at bat ...
