Hi collector friends , hope your all doing well. Thought I would show you another project I have been doing after the gas pump light I finished and posted. I purchased this Kendall oil sign some years ago with the intent on repainting. The original owner had taken an orbital sander to it to remove rust from the white letters but ruined the red paint in the process so I repainted the worst side. I'm not a sign painter so this is my first try. I ran into a few problems with the paint not taking well over the old paint even after a good wet sanding. I finally gave up and finished it the best I could. "KENDALL" was done with masking tape, the rest was hand painted with my shaky hands. Looks ok from a distance but not so up close but it was good practice. The 2nd photo is the side I repainted , the 4th photo is the side I left alone. I still have some touch ups and polishing to do to it. have fun collecting and stay safe.
