I picked up this great backlit deco style sign this past weekend. It was a Monarch Ranges sign that has seen better days, but the internals ar new. As soon as I saw it I knew If I could get T-way to make me a backlit decal for it in Red Indian it will look killer.

I quickly contacted Jim and he sent me the pic of the artwork that will be placed on a new glass piece. The overall size of the display area is 12" x 24". I just now need to get the pieces to the puzzle todether and re paint the sign and i believe it will be a stunning piece...Stay tuned. I will post the end results.

Thanks to Jim for moving so quickly on this!

bought a firestone,sign that someone has done this to. Had several look at it,and said stay away. But the back of it was old and I took a chance.I'm building in to the top of shelf to hold Firestone cans, and will it enjoy it just the same.Didn't pay big bucks which is well suited to my purse strings.

it's bad to sacrify a splendid sign, the monarch was really great and could be easyly restored, and the logotype of the monarch logo is just fabulous.

I placed an order with T-way and he promptly designed my new red indian sign to the dimensions I required. I was slow getting back to this project after the initial post. I just appied the first coat of paint the other night. Tonight I applied the T-ways work to a fresh piece of glass. I had to place it inside the sign to get a feel for the overall look and I must say it looks great even unfinished. It will now be completed this weekend. Will post pics of it permanently installed and lit up.

Thanks T-way..great work on this!

Sure does look like the same sign, except someone threw some dirt inside if it is. If this is the same sign this guy should pack his bags and leave the site.
