Hand lettering on a hand painted era car is the way to go. To put vinyl lettering on a vintage car is a sin.
Alot of times it's just to save time. You have to rememeber vinyl lettering really didn't start to get going till the late 80's so to have vinyl lettering on a car back then was a conveinance as it was with the 19 car that if a panel needed to be replaced during the week you had it and wern't trying to find a painter. The way it has advanced to printed wraps is amazing with the colors but some time too much. I had a car before all this print stuff in the 90's that needed customers logo on 1/4's which was highly detailed with flags and air brush lettering. Now if I was to have to hand paint and airbrush on say truck doors would be close to $500 while you doing car for $525? doesnt make sense
The solution was to got to Stalpes get logo blown up to size which had to be pieced which you couldnt see then laminate and glue to piece vinyl cut out line witn a xcato and install. Cost about $12.00 for 3 to make. Lasted all season and car even won best appearing at a mall show. Best about hand paint you could make a 1,000 plus on a pint of one shot.
