My neighbour does the electricity for me here. Every saturday about 2-3 hours, step by step. I dont know a price yet but he was always super cheap since my father helped him a lot when he built his home.
Lets see if I dont have the same problem like you guys  ;D

Damn! that was a bit steep  :-[
Can you scan the bill, and show it here? - of course with the company logo scrambled, I would like to see what they did, and also compare the labor price with Danish prices..

episode 1.26

The story of the Elektro sign continues! First of all we expand our collection of illuminated letters with some nice examples from the 1970s, take a closer look at them, remove the dirt collected by being out in the open for 40 years and finally come to a decision which will change EVERYTHING I had planned so far – at least when it comes to the plan of attack for the neon sign!

learn about the decision i have made right here!!!

Really love the neon sign videos. Lot of effort/money going in :D

Yeah I remember that Neon licht sign very very well Ully.....indeed a big shame it wasn't possible to save it.....I would have kept it for sure (like I have kept all my neon lighting and signs).

Speaking about neon. It's a good thing the neon-police is on holiday right now....... ;D ;D ;D



(Those things in the Buchstaben are fluorescent tubes. Not neon.)

....and following that...yes they will emit white light, as you say the color is produced by the platic cover.

Seeing this picture.......maybe replace the covers of the "KADE" portion of Barkade with matching green covers ?

Mmmm, yeah yeah I see your point.....in that case.....replace the blue covers by red.....that's more spicy than the green/blue combination which is two very safe colors :D
