    That should stand out from the other business signs around your area. Very classy.

    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:cool:

  12. 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? :rolleyes:

    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

    I second the suggestion 0that you could make money producing signs. In your spare time.
