From Art Pavlish of Rochester:
My daughter, a graphic designer, designed a logo for my eight year street rod project as part of the website about the build of the car. For Father’s Day, she gave me an almost 4 foot vinyl decal of the logo. I contemplated for several months what to do with it. My friend suggested I should make a sign like an old gas station “Mobil Oil” sign. I said, “I like that idea,” but then I thought, I’m going to take it up a notch and make it lighted for the man cave! It took me about three weeks to complete. It has a neon outer ring, the headlights and fog lights are lighted, and the entire sign can be lit. There are separate switches for each light. It looks great in the Rumble Room!
