Sign of going winter stir crazy

Post by oldnrusty1 » Mon Jan 21, 2019 8:01 pm

A winter project while I'm going stir crazy cooped up. The sheet metal came from an old refrigerator with bullet holes that was in the weeds behind the garage when I got the place. The biggest I'm able to make my sign is 65 inches. I now have a Ford script for both the front and back. I plan on mounting the script on bushings or 1" long tubing (like magnet spools) to make the script stand out. Then some half round near the edges of the sign to stiffen it up some. Not sure but the rest of the details may get painted in. But I'll gladly put it aside for spring time.

That is a superb use of time and talent.
When did I do that?

I love the winged pyramid sign design. So disctinctly early Ford. 👍
