Hey, that's cool.
Do they have to be plates originally issued to that truck?
In other words, could a fella say, bring his grandfather's old 1958 truck to TX from another state and then locate a set of old TX plates from another truck and use them?
I took these down to the county tax office and ask if they would work. The ran a check to make sure they were good plate and no one else had that # registered.
After I had them painted I took them back to the office and they registered them to my pickup.
Sorry about the color mix-up mine for the 52 truck are reversed colors so I can shoot it black and hand paint the letters or I will have to get my wife to since I shake too much when on medicine.
