    Then why not simply omit the spacing?

    Yeah just like that but with out the slits missing from those letters to make it as close to original without violating copyright

    Another font option, what about an all caps like the font from Stainless Steel Illusion (Thanks Tom for the suggestion):

    What do you all think?

    I am still with Lou on that 'close but not quite' OEM lettering.

    I'm not real fond of the poster. I think there could be better candidates altogether.

    Before deciding one way or another, I'd ask Grady what he used for the laser etching on his Mattaligners, and whether it was licensed or not, as I'm pretty sure it's the rustproof font.

    To understand what I mean, look at the spacing in between the bars of the "D" and the "n" or the way the "e" space is shaped.

    A lot of the original promotional / advertising pieces for the car was lackluster at best IMHO. Pennebacker reveals why that is - they didn't really invest in any promotion / advertising, but rather let the media publicity take care of that aspect of salesmanship under P T Barnum's aphorism that there's 'no such thing as bad publicity,' similar to how Trump is currently running his Presidential campaign.....

    A '81 era JZD standing in MJF pose with the car (no BTTF graphics, just DMC below and "Live the Dream") would be pretty bad ass for a poster. Similar in graphic quality/tone of the Goodyear Tire ad as opposed to the movie poster.
