Thank you for your positive comments lads.
Incidentally, I also sign write my ladders & my dust sheets too!

I will definitely do your transporter Tim as & when :cool: As Brian says you need to stand out from the crowd & be distinctive & your van does that as well. :thumbup1:

Brian - I did me ladders cos I was bored :001_rolleyes:
I have etched both of my ladders (and numerous steps and hop-ups) incase some twernt wants to 'borrow' them. Chances of me seeing the twernt on them are slim but if I happened to notice them I know I would have the right to upend him 20ft up :biggrin:

Aggie - Done my sheets too. Looks good too don't it.
On my stair sheets I have logo'd them on the first and last tread in line and all over the place elsewhere.
Are we tarts for doing this? :laugh:

Read somewhere one bloke logo's his sheets with THIS WAY UP so he always has the cleaner side on the floor/furniture.
I love the "swooshing" sound deadlines make as they go by.

I have written on some of my hop ups & other equipment 'stolen from the decorator' or Stolen from D R Agnew. :laugh:

"Stolen from D R Agnew"
Now that's a good idea Aggie. I may have to adopt that one mate.
Though I'd better change the name to B&A or the old bill will be onto me, eh! :001_tongue:

Brian,
That looks pretty damn cool.
Was it Aggie who said a sign should say what you do, where you are and how to contact you? It does all that.
Nice one :thumbup:

As you say Brian, I think signwriting is old hat too, you can't beat vinyl. Crisp cut lettering, quick and cheap to apply.
It's only like painting by numbers anyway (signwriting). Anyone could do it :scared: :lol: :wink:

Bring it on :001_unsure: :001_tt2:

Terry,
Which end of the mahl stick will you be inserting into Tim first?

Anyway Brian, you van looks great mate, it has all the four elements which you need to convey. Your customers will be pleased to have your van outside their home, the snobby ones like to show their mates that they have the decorators in. :thumbup1:
