Truth truck redefined | pro-life pictures on display
Here’s an idea from our Florida Operations. It only takes a few minutes to convert an old VW van to a life saving education project, suitable for any outdoor pro-life event. Or even a drive down the road! Mike Schrimsher tells us how to do it:
We used 3 “S” hooks (like are used at each end of a bungie cord) to hang the signs from the rain gutter on each side of the van and removed the center aluminum post from each sign because it created an awkward pivot point. Other than the 6 hooks at the top, there were only 4 points of contact with the van, the 2 side posts on each sign and we used foam pipe insulation as a cushion to prevent scratches from rubbing at those spots. We could have also used rubber-coated hooks to cushion the contact points in the rain gutters. Maybe next time. We completed the process with one long bungie cord stretched under the van and attached to the center of both bottom sign rails and 4 short bungie cords were used to attach each bottom sign corner to the underside of the van. The sign did not begin to budge at all, even at 45-50 mph.
The best part was it only took about 5 minutes to assemble and take down the whole contraption and everything fits inside the vehicle. It’s like the VW van and 4×8 GAP signs were made for each other.
