Ok, so my stepfather is a retired fire chief and he's restoring an old 1942 Chevy firetruck. He needed a wall clock in the shop he's working on his truck in. Rather than just give him a plain old clock I wanted to customize one to fit the "theme" of his shop. I bought a clock like this - http://i.walmartimages.com/i/p/00/75/74/56/99/0075745699542_215X215.jpg

But now I'm stumped on exactly what to do with it. The shop is rather large so whatever I do it needs to be easily readable from a distance. Does anyone have any ideas?

Maybe you can find some hot wheels cars, vintage or new, that are fire trucks and glue them around the clock frame?  Or maybe decoupage some pictures of fire related stuff on the clock face?  Hope this helps! Cheesy

I would try a free image sight such as freefoto.com and try to find an image of flames with a fire truck or firefighter and see if you can save it and have it printed somewhere like Kinko's or Ritz/Wolf camera if you need it larger than what comes off your printer.  Then for the numbers I'd go white if you have a dense fire scape, you can use rubons, stickers, chipboard, die cuts covered in diamond glaze for dimension, just head to your local scrapbook store and check things out.  Good Luck!  Sounds like a fun project!
