I just learned Imageshack (it was really quite easy) a couple weeks before things changed here. It still works fine for me.
That is one killer sign.

Craig,
you did just fine on the pics. GREAT SIGN.... does it lite up? and how in the world are you gonna hang it?(crane) laugh
I just picked up another sign this weekend that has the "ok" used cars but its plastic on a wavy white back bd. It use to be mounted here about 45 years ago before the cloverleaf came thru, but at least i know the history of it.
HAGW,
mike

Folks,
Thought I would post some sketches for the bracket I built for the Shell sign just in case someone here needs some ideas for hanging their sign(s). Works great for a double sided sign that needs to hang flat on the wall.

Good to see how folks deal with their big signs. I get to enjoy one of mine in my office, pretty much takes up the whole wall. . . sweet.
