    I don't know what the laws are in your state, but here in my area and surrounding cites, any sign over 6ft tall, requires engineer specs on this with wind calculations, etc. Might want to check that out. Make sure your client knows this as well, and the engineer cost should be paid by the client. Good luck!

    1/4" wall thickness. like stated above make sure you have your ducks in a row with permitting. that size base will be a bit overkill but work great for that size sign.
