    I just got finished restoring this sign for a buddy yesterday. It came to me as just two plastic sign faces. I fabricated a new can and aged it as well as fabricating new bracket and applying new trim to the faces. Illumination is now provided by super energy efficient LEDs. I love doing this stuff and wish I could keep the sign!
