Big fan of the pine, nice work. I've never seen a swat van style bus, it's an original.

Great plate on the car, how many letters/numbers can you use? ....we can use up to 8 here in Ontario.

Cut glass and penny tops very cool, was going to build a bar top using nickles [40's, 50's, 60's]. Ended up gutting my basement and never building the bar...still have the nickles. Did you slip in any Canadian pennies?

What kind of art do you do?

Thanks..we have 7 spaces on a plate to use as vanity plate in Illinois. I didn't think "SMARTSS" would be approved but it was...I create paintings of landmarks, cars, buses, homes etc. on glass or plexiglass and then add LED lights inside the frame to give the appearance of working lights on headlights, moon, windows, etc...In 1220 days, I am retiring and will travel across the back roads of the USA enjoying life and selling my art as we go. That's why I added an easel to be able to do art work in the bus. I hope I have the patience to wait that long...6/10/2019....
