Having new magnetic numbers made

I'm having my friend, who made the 1addicts decals and owns velozdecals, make up some magnetic door numbers for me for the Boston Chapter Autox series. I came up with a sketch.. trying to be retro, and wanting to fit with the car's character.

My buddy tweaked it a bit, and came up with this for the doors. I'm liking it. The outside edges are going to have a bigger black outline, but the rest will be very close to this... I used a Star Wars font, after trying many, many others...

The shape of the elongated 3 appears vaguely B ish, the impression is echoed and reinforced by the actual B. IMO.

Also, the characters within the outline incorporate full radii while the outline device is elliptical. IMO. You asked...:wink:
