Restoring neon signs

A complete vintage restoration includes not only repair of the parts that can be seen – the body, the trim, the chrome, the accessories – but the parts that are not necessarily visible or otherwise evident, including the pipes, the inside and underside, the frame, the mechanical, and all ancillary parts like the electrical system, accessories, etc.

Besides repairs done to correct obvious problems, repairs are also done for cosmetic reasons. For example, even if a part is covered and not seen, and is structurally sound, it should have the insides unmounted, then any required repairs such as rust removal, straightening, priming, and painting.

All of the parts showing wear or damage that were originally painted are typically stripped of old paint, with any rust or rust related damage repaired, dents and ripples removed and then the metal refinished, primed, and painted with colors to match the original factory colors. Some vintage items will include worn or pertained original parts showing its age and wear.
