Today, one of the official announcements came out of the One Lap of America event for announcing the graphics sponsor. The announcement was for High Noon Signs which is owned by Bob Stephens who is also a fellow one lapper.
We have a copy of the announcement here…
Part of this press release was Bob’s generous offer to help get the decals on the car for the event participants. Scheduling time in South Bend at an undetermined location, you can have the expert show you how to get the decals on the car.
I will not pretend that applying stickers in a windy parking lot is fun at all. It ranks right up there with chalk drawings during a rain storm. However part of me gets a certain amount of pleasure watching the rookies fight and struggle with decals on the car. Sticker day itself was part of the experience and became a challenge on the event. The poorly aligned stickers wasn’t always a lack of skill and is probably attributed to how hung over the team is from the arrival party the night before.
Having Bob’s assistance does offer some large advantages. Beyond the obvious one that it will not look like they were put on by a couple of hung over baboons, it opens up some of sticker day for us to actually meet some of the other drivers running on the event. It also let’s Bob see that the door decal for One Lap grew in physical size last year making it a real pain in the ass for small cars. Some of the smaller cars cut up the original door logo just to fit on the door in sections.
Now if I could only get High Noon to tell me secret techniques to get the stickers off of the Galant VR-4 which have become one with the paint by now.
