  1. Here's a link to photos of the Boss & Rosco plates I recently made. Boss & Rosco Plates I now have all of the steel dies needed to make the plate numbers for the main characters and many of the others also. I have all of the numbers and most of the alphabet in that style except for a few of the less common letters.
  2. I never liked the cheap looking plain plastic plates that they used for the '97 reunion. I made my own version to show what they may have looked like if they'd had more time and the money for some better props. Alternate Concept for the 1997 Reunion License Plates This is based on the 1990-1996 Georgia plates. I used a 1992 sticker because Bo and Luke had been away for a few years in the story.
  3. I have received the corrected dies for the General Lee & Daisy license plate details. Here's a link with photos of the finished plates and some work in progress photos of the dies. One red season 1-5 plate and one green season 6-7 plate. General Lee Plates
  4. Here are some photos of a green season 6-7 style test plate that I made with the defective dies. I also added a few HD screenshots for reference. The dies were mistakenly made backward, and they will not cut the edges of the letters from the correct side so that they lay flat on the plate as they should. The '0' and 'H' dies were also scaled wrong and couldn't be used for the test plate. All of the issues are being corrected and they are sending me new dies soon. Season 6-7 Replica Test Plate & HD Screenshots
  5. Links to photos of my new replica 1979-1982 registration decals for the red season 2-5 plates. I have them listed on eBay, username is drb1117. The photos are a little grainy looking because of my old camera, but the actual print quality is very clean and clear. These stickers are vinyl. I had them custom made by a sticker company from artwork based on the original props. They are weatherproof, fade resistant, and have a very good adhesive backing so you can use them outside on your cars. The 1981 sticker is available with the number 767806 and 726907. Both were used random
  6. If anyone needs a Knight Rider plate I also can make the KITT / KNIGHT plates. Graphics are copied from a surviving original prop. They are also $30/each shipped in the US. For the Dukes plates, I also have the yellow 1981 stickers and the white 1982 stickers if you need them. They are weatherproof, fade resistant, and have a really good adhesive backing so they will stay on your plates. They are non-reflective vinyl, and have a matte finish, like the original paper stickers. They are 2/$6 for members of this page, which includes shipping by USPS First Cla
  7. Yes. They are $30 for one plate or $50/pair. Includes US Priority shipping, and I'll send a photo of the plates before payment. I can have some ready to go in a couple of days. The graphics are all vinyl now. Too many issues with masking and painting them due to the humidity here. The plates will have a clear coat, so you can use them outside on a car.
  8. Some new photos of the other plates that I had made by the original prop house that they used for the TV plates. For some reason the linked photos keep disappearing.
  9. Here's one that I only noticed from watching the HD version of the show. In the flashback scenes from 'Happy Birthday, General Lee', the black Charger already had the CNH 320 license plate when Bo and Luke bought the car from the Capitol City junkyard. In 'Big Daddy', Rosco mentions to Boss Hogg that it takes 30 days to get a new plate from the DMV. That means that the original version of the CNH 320 plate that you see here must have been a Capitol City plate. In the screencap, it seems to have two words in the city/county area that are slightly too narrow to be 'Hazzard County'. The prop mast
  10. Yes. Georgia changed their real plates in 1983 and all of the prop plates were updated at the beginning of season 6 based on those changes. The only time red plates are seen in the last two seasons are on some background vehicles in early season 6, in reused stock shots, and for the flashbacks from 'Happy Birthday, General Lee'. In season 6, there is no registration sticker on the plates. In season 7 they added the 'W 84' sticker which was similar to the ones on real Georgia plates at the time. Here is the photo of my season 7 plate. The photo didn't upload correctly
  11. I was finally able to get some prop license plates from the same Los Angeles prop house that made all the real ones for the show. These are all hand made, exactly the same way that they made the actual props for Dukes back in the 80s. The lettering is an exact match for several surviving original plates, so they did use the original dies to cut them. They had a few slightly different sets of dies that were approximately the same size/type. The plates are almost identical to the real ones. The only exception is that they are made using better quality blanks now. As I have already done with
  12. I was working on this prop last year and had to put the project on hold for a while. This is a full-size and screen-accurate replica of the Re-Elect Rosco poster from 'One Armed Bandits'. The posters are excellent quality and professionally printed with very sharp, clear graphics copied from the original source material. They look like they could have been taken from the Dukes set. This is a very limited print run of only 25 posters for now. Each poster will be rolled, sealed in a protective poly bag, and shipped in a mailing tube by USPS Priority Mail. With each poster, I
  13. From S5E6 'Big Daddy'. It's the stolen plate used on a truck in a robbery. The guy makes a deal with Boss to get a clean plate for his truck, and Rosco swaps plates with the General. The 'Atlanta' is a little bit too big on mine. I'll fix that for the next one.
  14. Almost finished set of 7 plates (+ the Atlanta plate)
  15. I know it's kind of an old post, but Will Hare was also 'Old Man Peabody' in Back to the Future. I used to have an old signed theater biography file of his from the 1940s. He's a tough autograph to find.
