August Heat Means Stickers Don't Stick

OK, so, it turns out the vinyl stickers don't appreciate the Arizona heat as it relates to the interior of my truck. :( Several of the vinyl decals are peeled away from the surface of the control panel and that makes me sad.

I'm looking to actually silkscreen the graphics onto the panel, now. I've always wanted to learn how to do it. I don't want to mess up this beautiful panel, so I'm seeking experts in the field. There's a company in Tempe (good resource alert) called Phoenix Interface Technologies and it looks like they might be a good source to do this properly. I've emailed them some info on the project, so hopefully I can get a solution in place quickly.

In the meantime, I may just rig up what I have and bring the "vehicle" (I use that term very loosely) down to LM without all the fancy effects up and running. The Office Chairiot is still a hoot to drive even if it doesn't have weapons or sounds.

Also, as kind of a fun little historical note, I found the original napkin (literally) design I did for the panel, complete with coffee mug AND bourbon stains:

My name is Andy and I am a maker. Enough about me. How are you? What did you have for lunch yesterday? Have you made anything cool lately? OK, back to me: I like to make things, with or without purpose. Clocks, shelves, machines that turn themselves off, homemade circuit boards, IKEA chairs with motors, etc. I love to learn how to manufacture stuff myself. I also love to take things apart to see how real-world products are engineered.
