Hi Carl,

I know this post is a bit dated but can I ask where you got your panel made? It looks great!

Carl,
Also - is your new panel backlit to display the lettering at night?

I put together a drawing detailing the layout then I had a local sign shop help me layout and laser cut all of my new panels. I told them what I wanted where on the panel and they had them to me in just a few days. Bring your panels in to a local shop near you and start the conversation with them, hopefully they can fabricate them for you. I backlight my panels with a LED strip light, they come in a variety of lengths, mine are 6" long. Using a LED strip light eliminates all of those incandescent bulbs the factory installed.
