Tips On Creating A Personalized Show Board ? Part 1
Over the years I have learned a lot about how car owners add that personal touch to their car and I have to thank the many owners that helped me to better understand the desires of these enthusiasts. The car enthusiast is a proud group that often has many unique ideas that would differentiate their car, but they may not be sure how to accomplish it. Examples include the idea of having small circular photographs of the owners car that can be inserted in the center of wheels, to having custom step magnets for placement on the running boards of that custom coupe to keep people from stepping to get a better look. By collecting all of this information it is obvious that it is the subtle points that distinguish two almost identical cars
The owners that have taken their car show display to the next level have incorporated show boards into their display. The main intent of this board is to provide the viewer with information that the owner considers to be key about the car. The information ranges from the year, make and model, to more specific details about the engine, drive train and chassis. The next major element of the show board is tying it to the car, which is often a picture or pictures. Many boards have a standard layout of a front quarter view on the top, and a rear quarter view on the bottom, or other key element.
So the question for you is ?Do You Want Your Show Board and Vehicle To Stand Out From The Rest? ?
I would be surprised if your answer was anything but, YES!
As with adding graphics to enhance the paint, or chrome accents under the hood, a show board can be taken to the next level with fantasy pictures. Fantasy pictures could be as simple as a picture of your car overlaid on the engine compartment, or a key element such as the gas cap of that mustang GT. Combining this level of graphics, transforms a show board from just an informational board, to a piece of art completing your display.
When you think about creating your show board, do not only think about the text and pictures, but how to make it different from the others. Would you rather go to a restaurant and order items 1, 4, and 8, or talk with the chef and get a meal prepared just for you? You go to the experts for advice on how to enhance your vehicles look and performance, so you should also go to the artistic experts on how to display your vehicle.
