Race car # that has me baffled

Post by Bcmilligan » Tue May 30, 2017 2:24 pm

Help? My hubby starts racing in a couple of weeks and he's asked me to track down his Dad's Friend's old number. No one knows what font it is anymore...but he would like to duplicate it for his car for "in memory of". Can you guys help me figure it out? I've found a few that are similar but they don't have the rounded edges. Here is a pic I took and removed all the coloring around it to clean it up a bit.

thanks so much! :)

It's been so heavily distorted over the years so could have started out as something like:

Thank you! That font may be close enough for him to use to work for "in memory of". :)

I appreciate your response. Here's a pic of the picture of the car I had (which was small) but by the time I enlarged it to remove all the outside it did blur a bit.
Again, I'm so thankful for your help. :)
