More sign photos

Doug supervises as McJerry and I start to loosen up the old paint from the sign.

This turned out to be a bigger job than we’d anticipated. Evidently the last person to work on this sign considered latex house paint an appropriate finish for a metal surface. (Can you hear me rolling my eyes?)

Fortunately, the Lincoln has new owners who are willing to put some time, money and effort into their property, so I think we’re going to be seeing great things out there in the very near future.

    Great to see something like this going on, it’s about time we started preserving some of the old stuff,
    here in England we don’t see much of this happening, my mate runs a neon shop here in Brighton.
    I’m a getting on signwriter (70) still working because
    there’s still the work out there from folks who don’t
    want sticky letters.
    By the way I wouldn’t touch water based paint with a barge pole.
