The collection is looking good. Awfully brave to put that outside-would be impressive, though.

Looks like it had neon at one time with the glass stand holes. Can't see the housing holes though.

Not all neon signs have large holes in main body for tubing.

I probably wear you guys out with some of my posts but I went the neon guy today and dropped of the paper with the traced block letters and here is a couple pics of the green tube he will make the letters with , I didn't have to take the sign as I first thought but will install neon myself and learn something hopefully, maybe how to break it ? I just wanted to share with you all . Travis
