Enjoy.
So essentially what you're saying is that SPADs are the essence of Tim the Tool Man Taylor?

The 2mm coro can be rolled up into a tube small enough to fit in the back seat of most cars. Just tape it to hold the shape. I don't think the 4mm will roll up so good.

Good thing this is a election year. I have been noting which election signs on the big 4x8 coroplast sheets I plan on getting for myself, in a effort to help clean up after the elections.

hmm, rolling, good idea. if I can get the 4mm stuff to just touch edges, the tube would be small enough to get into the station wagon.

I wound up having a fold part way in on one side of large coro 4mm sheets. I grabbed a couple of political signs a while back. The 4mm doesn't roll up much, if any, at all. I have a Subaru Outback and the fold is about 8 to 9 inches in on one side to get the big sheets inside.
But I was thinking that the fold on one side shouldn't be too bad anyway.

yeah, there's an idea. measure where my leading edge fold would be and fold it there.

Yes that is a really good way to do it.
