Here's an animated neon sign we just finished up. Started with the USED CAR section and rebuilt the sign from there. New OK section, top/bottom paneling, and neon. Spent a lot of time figuring out the correct neon colors and layout. Installed five transformers, one a flasher for the OK lettering. Happy with how it came out but a lot of work on this one!

Thanks Craig, I really like how it came out. I wish we had the "OK" section, but just not available to us unfortunately. It would have been a whole lot easier to do! My original thought was that if he ever finds an original OK circle, speaking of the client I did this for, he could swap it out sometime in the future. But. after doing the sign, it was so much work really no way that'll ever happen. I think you do the best you can with what you have and just be careful not to misrepresent it. 2/3 of the sign is still original, which is pretty cool I think.
