OF ALL MY COKE BUTTON SIGNS THIS HUGE PLASTIC "SIGN OF GOOD TASTE"
BUTTON IS 5'6" TALL! HANGING IN MY LIVING ROOM, I CREATED A SPARKLE
EFFECT BY MAKING A FIXTURE HOLDING A LINE OF 25 XMAS LIGHT SOCKETS EACH USING A 9W FLICKER BULB. IT'S ON A TIMER, SO IT COMES ON BETWEEN 7 AND 11PM EVERY NIGHT. YOU CAN PHYSICALLY SEE IT 4 HOUSES UP THE BLOCK! I ALSO ADDED A RED ROPE LIGHT AROUND THE OUTSIDE BORDER FOR ENHANCEMENT PURPOSES!

Here are some close ups of some more of my backlit signs



Lit my Pegasus with rope lights. Gave it kind of a different effect like that coke button.

I really wanted to join in on the games here, but this is the only sign I have unpacked to photograph. I guess it could be considered a "backlit" sign, although it's actually lit by a neon tube around the edge of the glass. The letters "Lubrication" are etched into the back of the glass.
