Always blows me away when I see photos of an Amerigo FG16 in progress...my first reaction is always, "Wow, that looks just like OUR trailer!" Silly ;me.


Looks great! Yes, indeed, those sliders look good!

I think I read a post where you had Amerigo stickers made. If so, do you have a contact?

We got the Amerigo "globe" logo from CUSTOM VINYL STICKERS. We got the word "amerigo" and "FG16" embedded in the racing stripes. There are many vendors on eBay who sell custom logos AND racing stripes; this one offered to add words in your choice of font. I got a facsimile of the original amerigo logo online and e-mailed it to them and they went from there. I've put some of it in a post above.


There are MANY rub-on exterior auto (etc.) decal vendors on eBay; what we used in 2015 and 2016 may not be there now, but I'm sure you can find others. We got some ready-made stickers as well, such as the "unplug with a pug" sticker, the pug and crossbones (beware of pug) we put on the door window, etc. It was a lot of fun. We also got puffy silver dog prints to cover the old ratty window logos and some yin-yang circles to cover others on the windows. some are quite cheap; the larger custom ones such as the monkey with PEANUT plus a native American oval (Sac n Fox tribe) cost a bit--but it was worth it.


My BEST, please post here on FGRV with pics if you get some! That was probably the most fun to see Peanut being embellished and finished off.


BEST
Kai

Looks like it's coming together nicely! Great job on the rear trunk hatch, very resourceful using an old window frame to build it.

I also I had asked if you'd be willing to sell me the old window frames awhile back, you were, Im sure, very busy with your project and never sent me pictures of what you had, would you still be willing to send me pictures and possibly sell me what you have left?

I'll take it, how much do you want for it? Also if you have any more of the plexiglass frames with out the screen frame, I'd be interested in them too.
