Restoring an Old C= Amiga Sign

Short story

I live in the southern suburbs of Adelaide, Australia. In a retro group i follow on Facebook someone posted a sign that had been ruined by a paint over yet survived the past 25 years outside pinned to a fence.

Went to location, did a deal, picked it up and starting to restore it.

Its NOWHERE near complete, but hopefully some messages here will help the pain in the fingers and shoulders go away.


Original March 13th Post:

Will update this post in there future, so if you are interested or have questions, follow this thread. Thanks.

March 25th Update:
Worked over an hour on it today and i have a blister on my finger tip from it.

Yeah it is, someone has bent three pieces of metal to act as hooks so it can rest on a fence. One person can JUST lift it. Not so much the weight but cause it bents and wobbles being a thin sheet.

Great stuff! I used to build my own light signs. The largest one is still mounted on a wall in my living room The image used is a printed one that I found on Aminet.

edit: another pic of this sign can be found in my gallery (last pic).
