Parisian Taxi

A friend of mine had a car and he wanted his 1960 Panhard PL-17 (French) automobile to look like a toy that he bought. He brought a Taxi sign and a meter that keeps track of time but did not know how he could get these things to attach to his car to make it look like the toy. So First, vinyl graphics were cut to create a logo and letter for the rear door at the local vinyl sign shop. The top was painted red (to match the toy) and once it dried, double face body molding tape was applied to the sign and then placed on the roof of the car. a couple of pipe flanges, pipe elbows, and black iron pipe pieces formed the bracket that mounted the meter to the body of the car. And although the sign did not light and the meter did not function, my friend had a car that matched his Parisian Taxi toy that he could drive around in. The painting skill is what would bump this project into an intermediate level of difficulty. I am sorry for the quality of the photo, it was taken with my flip phone.
