  1. I got the sign last week. Here it is after a cleaning.
  2. Thank you. I will check that out.
  3. I agree, needle nose after glass is broken. But I’ve also had success using a large flat head screwdriver. After the glass is broken, I shove a flathead (one that is just slightly smaller than the diameter of the bulb) into the base, (where the old epoxy/glue is) and give it a twist. That has worked for me In the past.
  4. Here are a few more photos I took today. It looks less yellow in natural light.
  5. Hello everyone, If you saw my post in the General forum, you know I just bought my first porcelain sign. I just received it the other day and thought I would show it off to my fellow Dodge Brothers. It is a very very well worn double sided Dodge Brothers Approved Service Station sign. I’ve given it two separate scrubs with some “Bar Keepers Friend” cleanser. I think a few more cleanings are in store before I mount it on the wall. Here is a photo of both sides:
  6. Indeed! And I agree on the souvenir theft deterent theory. Interesting. Maybe I’ll make one.
  7. I was visiting Las Vegas and Primm, Nevada for my birthday over this last weekend and went to go see the Bonnie and Clyde death car. The front plate has a wire protector installed around it. Does anyone know who made these? I would love to buy one if I could find one. I know it could be made, but I would like to find an original if possible.
  8. I’ve done some googling and a lot of people reccomend “Bar Keepers Friend” cleanser for cleaning up rust stained and dirty porcelain signs. Anyone have any experience?
  9. That’s great. I’ll be checking them out soon.
  10. I am still in the market, but am putting the purchase on the back burner until later in the year. I like that ball, so if it is still available later this year, I will email you.
  11. Oh. Hopefully someone has the info. I’m anxious to hear the results.
  12. Did you end up using this new carburetor?
  13. Yeah. I probably never will. But I’ll give it the old college try.
  14. This guy tried to get me a few years ago
