    I'm not into PM's but my knee jerk reaction is...

    Will the city code allow that sign up?

    Will the sign be installed in an area the restaurant has control of? I have proposed signs like this before, only to get shot down because the sign was being mounted on an area of the wall where another tenant was in control over and the tenant did not want a flashy sign in their face. and running electrical was a little problematic because access had to go through another tenants area.

    20" seems slim without looking at the design to know of neon is going to work. and again, will code allow incandescent?

    Thank you Rick for your reply.
    The town of Newhaven Connecticut has approved the type of sign and given the OK to have an engineered drawing submitted to them.
    They will then OK the permit subject to all components meeting spec.
    The building is a stand alone building so no problems from neighboring business.
    Thank you

    Quit posting that Rick it's one of my fav projects in the last few years, very impressive. I keep looking for clients that will allow me to do something on that scale.

    letterheadfonts has a collection of 1950s style panels, worth checking there as a design starting point. http://www.letterheadfonts.com/fonts/20sixletters.php
