So I actually bought the two cardboard signs about 3-4 years ago and have had this planned ever since. Been chasing the various/correct cans for some time and I finally got around to making it all happen. Really happy with how it came out.

Yes, just a simple peal and stick battery powered strip. $14 at Home Depot. I didn't want to deal with a cord.

Thanks everyone! Very happy with it. One note, the yellow on the trim is more yellow than it looks in these pics.

On another note. It blows my mind how the money ads up when buying all these cans. And the can in the upper right, there is one on ebay right selling for over $200!! Crazy!

Coming soon, Amoco display with 2 globes.

It came out very nice. The cans really give the signs a pop. It looks like it came right out of a Sunoco station.
