  1. I'm sure it's nothing a little lake time on the boat and some stiff drinks can't take care of!
  2. What happened to the foot bar and the back gauge?? Did someone try to lift it by those with a forklift?? The foot bar eeehhh that can be repaired pretty easy as long as it did not damage any actuators, but the back gauge looks smoked...
  3. They Claim they are UL listed...
  4. This is what happens when you don't use the silicone and only rely on the VHB...and use VHB to block a module up to not be shadowed by an LED driver...This was a company out of Indiana that made these...
  5. Long story short....you'll spend more money on vinyl that what it's worth to go with a cheap cutter, I threw away lots and lots of vinyl with my US Cutters... From not tracking straight to just stopping in the middle of a cut file they have sooo many bugs in them it's not funny.
  6. I'm guessing with the faces already removed, all ALL of the letters hanging, not just a few, that this was a job the OP was removing and did it for the laugh factor... No way...NO WAY in hell even if they used really short screws and very little silicone that they all would have fallen without the owner noticing and calling it in...
  7. We will be hanging the ones in the photos from the ceiling of a convention room, but they are too large to fit through the door, so they have walls torn out for us to get them in the room, once the room gets closer to completion we will finish the install of these along with a few other smaller ones that can fit through the door. At that time yes we will be fixing the neon on all of the signs, they also wanted to fix the flashing lights around the Chevrolet sign! I suggested that they would not need any other lighting in the room if they chose to do that! They decided to go with just the neon...
  8. We are moving some old well known signs in the Des Moines area from a warehouse into a new restaurant, pretty cool stuff, thought you all would like to see them. I will post updates as we move forward.
  9. Old post but with summer coming I couldn't help but contribute. We spend every minute we can at the lake.
  10. We have ordered from them with satisfaction met in every department, ordered online with no problems, part showed up a few days later. I Highly recommend MCS!
  11. Most around here are like you stated "counter service" but we have one here in central Iowa that is taking up to 2 weeks to issue a permit for a simple face replacement, I'm talking about removing and replacing a simple tenant panel in a strip mall! They have got to be one of the most anti business muni's around! But after seeing what Leawood is doing down there... Wow how has no one taken them to court?
  12. How long does it take your municipality to process sign permits?
  13. Any Ideas where this was?
  14. My company does a few installs for some local print shops, I often get the quote request that goes something like this... Print shop: Hey can you install a 5 x 10 alu-panel sign for us? Me: Sure, Details? Print shop: It's on the side of a building in town...how much are you going to charge us? Me: Details? Location? Height to sign? Fastening method? Do you have a layout for me to look at? Print shop: This is just a quote, we were not going to do a layout until we sell it.....How much? Am I the only one that sees this as asking a home builder to build you a house with no blue prints??? I know what we do is not rocket science but c'mon!!! The devil is in the details and that is where you loose money!!
  15. That thing looks to have been mounted solely to the brick veneer, no structural through wall mounts to any steel reinforcement. I wonder if that mounting method had an engineers stamp?
