I know some people like signs when they remain in their rusty condition, but I like to restore some of them to show what they would have looked like when new. Here's my first attempt at a refurb. Photos in order of appearance - rusty right after purchase; after sandblast; complete & complete with flash. I'm happy with the results.

    mustang - Gotta do your homework when restoring something. The other thing different about this sign - the word "Through" is spelled out, not shortened to "Thru".
