You put the number in the wrong spot, regardless of why you had to do it... that's still a gaffe.

Actually, a "gaffe" is an unintentional mistake; Joe states that the number was moved intentionally.

All right then Mr. Pedantic... it's a mistake, period.  If the number was such an issue... then why not just do the scheme with the number on the hood side?

Laundry chute is the nickname for the later style angular blower duct...

That is the Hiawatha scheme, and would require the Indian graphic on the front (not just the moved number).

No ***** Sherlock... it would also require a different name on the side, and a different mask for the orange... the point is that the road number is no longer an issue to pad print, but it's still a MILW scheme...

But I still want to know, what is a "laundry shoot"... Is it some kind of bizarre contest, like a turkey shoot, but where housewives take down their laundry with a twelve bore or something?

...not to mention the Laundry shoot just below and to the left of the surface, it was causing the print head to misform...

You can easily fix the number since the black needs to be resprayed anyway to bring it down a bit (I knew there was someting that looked wierd).  :P

So, if the side of the dynamic brake blister is too restrictive to print a number, how in heck is this done?:

smaller pad (not the problem) and at 90 Degrees from the pad surface...and expensive to do considering the placement.  Hey, the sun just came out, I think I'll go outside and play! :o)

Also before I put my Keds on...white ink has a lot of solids in it making it difficult to print in an Ink Jet environment.  there are machines that do it, but the ones that us mere mortals can afford only offer a haze and not full blockage.  Alps is a Godsend with white, wish there was  way to get a regular printer to do it.
