    Garage\"decoration\" - License plate wallpaper - I need your old plates!

    Mods - I know that this is *kind of* out of place, but it does relate directly to garages. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    So, I've been thinking about how to make my garage at the new house feel like "home", and I've decided that I want to take one wall and try to cover it with license plates from all over the country. I have a couple dozen plates already that are in my current garage but I'm going to need a few hundred more. I don't even care about the high value stuff that I see on E-bay, I just think that all the different colors would look really cool covering up a wall. You see where I'm going with this... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif If any of you guys want to write your CK5 handle on the corner of an old front plate that you aren't using, I will give it a place of honor on my "CK5er Wall of Fame". /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I'll pay shipping if it's an issue. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Plates from Canada would be cool too, eh... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    For that matter, plates from just about anywhere would be cool. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif


    Anybody else have license plate collections that I can see some pics of? I'm sure that this has been done many times before, but I'm wondering if anybody on CK5 has done it...

    Thats cool, I'll look around to see if I have an old Alberta Canada one for you. I might have got rid of them when I moved but you never know, I had quite a few from my old cars/trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: My idea for garage \"decoration\"

    I have a plate from each state I've lived in long enough to register a car. But unless I can find some I've forgotter about I'm keeping mine. I wouldn't worry about multipulls from the same state, espically if they are different years/designs. Sounds like a cool idea to me. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Re: My idea for garage \"decoration\"

    I started doing that when my father and I would go to the junk yard. I have close to 75 plates. Of course not all states, but of different plates. I built my work bench with a band of 2x6 at the top,so the plates are lined up on that. The shelves are not done, but I am hoping to have enough space for the plates.
    Good idea, I think it is a nice addition to a garge.
    You always have to have signs too.

    Re: My idea for garage \"decoration\"

    I'm not worried about multiples at all, I want to cover the back wall of a 3 car garage so I'll definately have tons on multiples up there. I know that CA has had like 6 different plate designs in recent memory, alot more if you count the special plates. Either way I'm not worried about it, I'll take all that I can get; if the plate is off of a current CK5er's ride then I guarantee it will go up in a visible spot, especially if there is a CK5 "handle" written on the corner or something.

    I only have one sign, a 35 MPH one that fell off of the post right in front of the place I used to live. No really, it actually fell off... seriously. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif that will go on the wall too, somewhere in the middle probably with all the plates surrounding it.

    I can send you one of my old CO plates, and I might change my plates to the Vet plates we have here. So you could get one of the newer CO plates. I might even have one of my Y plates from Okinawa from my Pajero still if youd want that. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
