Magnets
 
I lost one of my magnets at the last event. I left it on the car on accident and lost it down the interstate. Just wondering if any of you have a good place that you go purchased yours from. Somewhere that isnt going to cost me 80 bucks.
Thanks in advance

i ruined mine after the last event... i made them from staples, but they got a little crumpled, then i forgot them on the trunk trying to get them to flatten in the sun, and forgot them over night.... and the morning dew worked them over.... pissed....

Are you referring to magnetic door numbers etc. If so most sign/banner shops have them or can make them up for you and for a lot less than race shops etc. I've also seen the magnetic sheeting sold on line in various sizes so you can cut your own numbers if desired. The sign shops may even sell the sheeting as well. Hobby shops may even carry it.

^^^That's where I got mine...sign shop.
I also picked up some bulk peel and stick vinyl from the same place and made my own numbers to put on the magnetic sheets.
Here's what they look like:

If you're referring to the 8.5X11 sheets that you can run through a printer, that's pretty thin stuff.
The sign shop material is probably 3/32" thick.

BTW, my numbers still stayed on the car at 125mph. [:D]

I know in my city (salt lake) there is local guy that does these for pretty cheap, i would see if there is someone in your region that does it as well.

A local sign shop did mine for $10 a number. I've seen a few done with Staples magnetic sheet fly of during runs.
