    They spelled car with a 'K'.

    I'd ;like to see it lit up at night. That should really be a treat. :covereyes:

    I especially like the kerning in "WASH".
    Is it just me or does the "S" look like it's upside down?

    Whats odd is that the kerning on the other two sides looks better ... more space in between the W & A

    Love how Frisco is just doing its own thing - arched with no relation to the background, "centered" wherever it wants

    things I found...

    Kerning in "Car Wash", "Frisco" vinyl is not centered or arched correctly, the red vinyl in "Water Works" is all over the place, the entire sign is not even centered in the building's arch.

    & the channel sign is leaning one way and "Frisco" is leaning the other.

    At least the white stroke around water works is nice and consistent

    "WATER WORKS" is about 2' feet too far left & it looks like it's right side is about 1' lower than the left.

    Hey tex...... did you get a new camera, yet ?? If not, I'd say most of this stuff is caused by your cheap a$$ camera and little lens.

    If you google this place it looks like the old letters were blue for water works and that someone came and put new text on an old sign cabinet.

    Neat observation. I looked "back in time" and the "Frisco" was correctly centered at one point...
