6mpg if you are nice to it, which I am sure that is hard to do.

My hood was the next thing in line to get painted this weekend, but during the final sanding, I found some small areas that need some work. So, in an effort to prevent a total setback on the paint work schedule, I changed gears and painted some small parts instead. My goal is to get all of the painting completed before Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks a lot, Eric! Coming from a guy that built a bad-azz YJ himself, that means a lot!

Since I'm going to paint the hood this weekend, I can finally place an order for lettering of the name of my Jeep, MAGNUM FORCE. To recap, I like that name because my engine has Magnum heads, I like Clint Eastwood movies, I'm a Mopar guy, and I like guns.
I've narrowed the font style down to these four. (the bullet on choice number 3 will look more realistic) Which one do you think I should go with? Help me decide!!

Number 2 looks militaryish to me. I like the bullet on 3, but the line through there looks off. Tuff Call. Thanks for nothing, right..

To me...1 is a no. 2 is ok. 3...is this an actual font or something that has been created? I might try a couple things with it. First, open up the line a little and enlarge the bullet. Second, maybe try a line of color instead of the negative space.

I just got back from a 4 day photoshop convention and am feeling creative.

No. 3 is a font type called SF Sports Night, so I can't change the width or the color of the line.

Thanks for the replies so far!

If only there was something in between 1 and 3; like a combination of the two. I think the 2nd one looks like it should be on an old willy's or restored military Jeep
