Seven years later... Now retired with some extra time on my hands. I finally brought myself to pull the shattered sign out and see if I could make it presentable. I found a local old school sign-maker that helped me with the frame. Feels good to bring it back, albeit with some additional “patina.”

Way to turn lemons into lemonade. It is definitely presentable and has added "character". Good save!

That definitely looks presentable now. Nice job.

New thread title: Nice End to a Sad Sign.

One thing I noticed in common among the several bad stories from 7 years ago..... Fed Ex.

And Joey is right, I’ve been in these sorting facilities several times. Those conveyers are easily 20 feet high at times and packages do fall from log jams. Also the speed of the packages is significant. If one gets stuck on the rollers and a 60 pound package is bearing down on it.... it’s like a large bowling ball headed towards your sign.


WTB signs: WHITE STAR, FILMOIL, FLYING A button and Economical Transportation Chevrolet Sign. Also looking for a Wayne 866. Send a PM. Thanks.
