Bought this GMC Dealer sign off of Old Gas a few years back from a non member who had posted it for sale; he was wanting funds for his car project. We struck a deal and he shipped the sign from Minnesota to Texas. I cleaned the porcelain pretty quickly, but could not find anyone local to do the Neon; was going to have to make the trip to Oklahoma City to get it to a guy who is very good at the older stuff. As I was trying to find the time to make the trip a fellow car guy hooked me up with a small local guy who does the neon out of his house; after seeing his work and sorting out the details he came and picked it up. Well last night he delivered the finished sign; I am very happy with the results. Now just have to rent a lift to hang it inside my shop. cool
