Hello, I posted a story about my Neon Yellow Stop sign refurb. In that thread I mentioned I had another Neon project. When I purchased the original sign the gentleman mentioned he also had a salesman sample of the same sign. I expressed interest and later purchased it from him, unfortunately it was broken inside and I have had it in my shop unseen for at least 20 years. While working on the original sign I mentioned it to the sign repair lady and she encouraged me to bring it in for her to look at.
She got right on it and fabricated a new Neon to match the broken one.
This sign has a piece of colored glass in front of the Neon that was also broken, so now I am on the hunt for a piece of dark red glass. This sign has the original transformer that still works, it also has a mechanical flasher unit that does not work. The wiring is all cloth covered for insulation and appears a little sketchy, my intention was to rewire the sign, but my sign lady talked me into ordering a new safer, electronic transformer with an adjustable flash feature. I will keep the original parts with the sign so it can be put back to original if someone wanted. I will post more pics after I get it all done.
