Are you a "motorhead" or a weekend car enthusiast who likes to tinker with the family car? Maybe you have a family member that you go to for all of your automotive problem solving.  We all know a guy/gal that loves to get their hands greasy and can't wait to tell you how they "tricked out their ride".   This project is sure to get you some choice garage time knowing that their is a custom garage sign in their future!

We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and re-use.  These features include:
- the wrenches can easily be overlapped, simply add a base height to the top wrench.
Garage sign has a flat bottomed dished center so it will accept almost any model and will also let you get the most "Z" depth out of the added model.
- The bolt head has a flat top so you can V-Carve your favorite car or business logo on to it! NICE! 

We have also created a free vector download for the stylized garage text we used in our example layouts.

Now it's time  to roll up your sleeves and get ready to get your hands dirty making a new sign for Dad's Garage!
