At long last the signs are not only painted but erected
The fellow was supposed to be taking them to be hot zinc sprayed, then painting them in 2K black and white and delivering them back to me. Well they got zinced ok, but he ended up using my welding shop for the painting and was a right menace - hardly 'turnkey' but after a few false starts, and three days of mucking about with paint, I eventually got him off site
So this morning I judged that all was hard enough to handle, and assembled them and planted them in the ground. Ended up having to use the forklift truck to get them to site - they are amazingly heavy and too wide to go in the tailgate of my Discovery, as I had hoped. Anyway they are in, and bedded with 'dry mix' which I have subsequently watered.
It'll be interesting to see how long before they appear on Google Streetview !
