    Another in the backyard as well. He stores them for his mates in Canberra so they dont have to tow them down the mountain.

    Nice Signs. How long did it take you to make them?

    Thanks Jake
    Each sign only took a few days.
    I had some left over wood fom my projector screen,
    Marked out the coro in pencil,
    Taped the 2 signs together
    Drilled a few holes (about 450 per sign)
    Then used a round file to remove most of the dags.
    This saves your fingers & makes it easier to push the lights threw.
    Sprayed it black let it dry for a day
    Screwed the boards to the frame.

    I found it saved me having to inform the visitors of the radio station ( even though I had 2 other signs on the house) The sign was visable as people drove up the street from either direction and was the first thing they saw.
    The dito sign was a huge hit.
