My sign served three different advertisement purposes ! sorry on my phone, hard to resize photos so I'm posting a previous post.

The black you see is spray paint with heavy overspray on top of a painted sign. Nothing I tried would cut through it so I said heck with it and hit it with lacquer thinner. It's almost perfect now without harming the finish.
