Default License plate covers for local crew

Been working on a license plate cover for my jeep and the other local rigs in my crew using my plasma cam, this also works as a sign but since my jeep will be a trail rig this is going to replace my license plate, this is a WIP and yes i know im cheating by using a plasma robot haha.

My personal opinion is that it's cheesy as all hell, but you aren't making them for me so that's irrelevant. However, I would throw the hood's V channel on there and see how it looks so there isn't so much empty space.

Tried the V channel didnt come out the best but here is where im at now, some letters needed modification because the holes would have fallen out and it would have ended up being a giant hole in a piece of steel. still got some cleaning up to get done on it. I cant help the cheesy aspect of it haha there is only so much i can do on steel with the software.

this was my first attempt at the V channel and i think i might be able to make it look cleaner and it might work but im just curious on what it would look like on metal, the plasma cutter leaves an 8th of an inch cut line

Well the channel doesn't actually come to a point on the hood. I was just thinking the two lines slightly off-parallel could potentially look good. I am interested in seeing the final product.

It's cool. Why not figure out a way to mount the license plate light behind it so it lights it up from behind for a cool silhouette look?
