Man, that’s beautiful. I too would like to hear details on the construction.
That should stand out from the other business signs around your area. Very classy.
Holy Crap! And what everybody else has said!
If that sign is any indication of the quality of your hot rod work, and I'm sure it is, then double wow. Thanks for sharing. I might have to make the drive to Beautiful Downtown Burbank just to check it out in person
Great art deco look but is that a skull or voodoo head under the S that awesome
Another example of your eye for the classic and simple straightforward look. Atta Boy!
That is Spot-On-era-correct .... Beautiful.
Add neon to that sign.
That is cool as hell!!!
That is a job well done.
That`s just outstanding Sir.Please post some details of the build.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
That sign is light years better than a flat piece of metal stuck on the side of a building.
In particular, that one would cause me to pull over and come inside to kick some tires.
That's what a sign is really supposed to do, ain't it?
It has a movie theater vibe ! Beautiful, creative work.
Traditional & Art Deco at the same time, looks great! HRP
Got a night shot with it lit up? Looks great!
Holly Sh t very nice but dam there goes the profits ! you need a race engine
Too cool for school. Awsome work
Outstanding design and execution. Very cool.
Hey guys thanks for all the compliments I appreciate it. Just to answer a few questions about the construction. It’s just a basic square tube frame and thin gauge steel sheet metal. Hand cut aluminum letters and some paint. I built a wood pattern and cast the ribs in front. The bottom Speed Equipment lights up and I’m not doing neon. Thank you again
Haha it didn’t cost me much. Had most of it already. Motor next
Yes, you are the new Pan Pacific Auditorium, looks great!
Nailed it !
Nice work, looks excellent.
I second the suggestion 0that you could make money producing signs. In your spare time.
Neon would send that sign so over the top!
Man, that’s beautiful. Forget neon that deserves SPOTLIGHTS.
Great work....NEW LANDMARK!!!!!
Love the design and execution! I can’t imagine any way to make it better. Very cool!
Now we need to see it lit up in an evening shot....
