    Isn’t it great when you’ve spent the past two weeks batting emails too and fro, as well as a few face to face meetings to discuss the signs going on a SWB transit custom, and they drop off a medium or possibly even a LWB van instead… :rollseyes:

    Now have to try and make this all work as per the proof – What a great start to a rediculously busy week!

    We’ve all done it. 😉
    I now work with real photos.
    And also ask clients to measure and send me the wheelbase dimension.

    I’d asked the customer on a couple of occasions to bring the van in for a final measure-up but they were too busy.. the one time it really would’ve helped!

    Yes we’ve done it too… with full colour panel inserts… nothing we could do but send them away and refit later in the week. :rollseyes:

    Rather embarrassing.

    At least the swb design will fit on, albeit a tad small

    We had a gas company that had two vans exactly the same, turns out one was a swb the other lwb

    And we were the bad company because we charged them an extra for the recutting of those decals that were too long….

    yes, that did occur to me that it was the better of the two problems to have!!

    As it happens, it worked out much better than the design for the swb, I felt it looked a bit too cramped anyway – so this allowed me to do it how ‘I’ wanted to do it!!

    Oneof the reasons I only work from photos and not vehicle outline stuff
