10 minutes 20 seconds ago AC Plug/branded gasoline 2 gallon cans by 2 Gallon Luke

In the 1950s-60s, 2 gallons were made for various brands of gasoline combined with AC plug ads on them. To date, I have Signal. Phillips, Buick, and Skelly versions. I know of Cities Service, Atlantic, Pure Firebird, and Sunoco left to get.

If you have any of these, or a brand I did not mention, PLEASE, contact me. I will pay up to complete this set.

45 minutes 8 seconds ago 42" BLACK LION SIGN by bustermonty

The Porcelain Purge Continues!! Another great sign out of my rough but rare collection. Looks like it was a table at one time. You can see remnants of the legs. Faded more on one side. Photos in the sun show it all. Looks like 3 pin holes all the way through. When was the last time you had a chance to buy one? Kyle Moore's collection has one for the condition whores but this one should be a bit less expensive. Asking $2700

Yesterday at 10:51 PM Upgrading an older rev paint glass electric sign by Oldgas

This old reverse painted glass electric sign needed new lamps and wiring. I tried replacing the original 2 standard lamp sockets, but I couldn't find any bulbs that would evenly light the glass ad panel. The 2 bulbs delivered 2 bright spots and unevenly lit the rest.

I got some LED strip lights that are intended to be used under kitchen cabinets. They are only a quarter inch wide and a foot long. The strips can be plugged into each other for a long unit or a pigtail wire can be used between strips for flexibility in placement.

I put two 1 foot strips together on the upper part of the can and 2 on the lower with a pigtail jumper wire between. They are powered by a 12v transformer that plugs directly into the wall.

The new setup delivered near perfect illumination across the whole ad panel. The LEDs use less than 5 watts and do not get warm.

The end result after assembly is a glow similar to neon but not as bright. Nu-Enamel made auto finishes before WWII. "No Brush Marks"

I felt uncomfortable at first with modifying the original wiring and lamps with modern non-original alternatives. But it looked so much better than the original lighting, I got over it. wink After I'm dead, the next owner can easily put it back to original.

Yesterday at 08:30 PM Oshawa Vigor Oil can will do for now. by Cec

This is a familiar can to some fellow Canadian members. It is a very tough can to get and since I was born in Oshawa I want one.
I have been watching this can on Ebay for several months and decided to buy it even though it was very rough. I got it on a best offer and it was less than $30 CDN shipped.
I am fairly pleased with the results. I used Oxalic Acid and soaked it for 3 hours, the majority of the rust was gone within an hour. I know from other cans I have done if left longer I could have taken more rust off, but I didn't want to risk fading the colors on the one side as they are not bad.
Its still pretty rough but will display well up on the shelf until I eventually find an upgrade.
I included before and after pics.
