Once the glue was dry I used my die grinder to even things up and remove the excess glue from the edges. A subtle texture was added to the sign edges and back side at the same time. Some Abracadabra sculpting epoxy was used to fill the screw holes.
I also welded up a quick holding stand that will safely and conveniently hold both signs (back to back) for painting and transport.
The signs are now ready for painting. They will be hung in place onsite late next week.
Stay tuned for the next sign that is already in progress...
