Question Colored Documentation Numbers

I'm looking for colored numbers/letters to be used in my engine compartment to show documentation.
What I want is colors that match my paint scheme which
is in plumb and raspberry.
Where can I purchase these?
I was hoping that I could purchase out of a catalog or something instead of having a local graphics shop cut them out for me $$$$

Have a local sign/graphic company do it.You can pick your colors and it is real cheap.($10-$15)

I had some nice raised plastic registration numbers on my old 29 Scarab but can't remember where I ordered them. I would like to find the same for my new boat.

Don't worry about having to remove them. When you sell the boat, the documentation number stays with the boat, and transfers to the new owner.

Registration numbers and documentation numbers are two completely different things. As Sydwayz said, doc numbers don't change except in very rare cases.

Being that this isn't the first boat that I've had documented I do know what the difference is between doc and registration & also know the rules...........
The vinyl lettering will be brushed over with resin and that
would make it permanent.
But thanks anyway for your valuable input

Here is what I had made for the Cig. It is made out of Billet with the #'s milled into it and then painted to match the rest of the boat. I bolted it to the stringer. Looks a little nice than stickers.

Here are the battery covers and the dash ect were painted the same. A little more custom IMO.

That's tight!

Make sure the Govt. takes care of your boat when they come knockin' and drag your ride off to some forein land to patrol the swamps during war time!!
