    I have a customer that is looking for a used capital letter "C" channel letter for a rustic style sign. The letter can be in about any condition and style. Prefer a black,white, or raw exterior and the face is not needed. The height can vary as well as long as it is around 3' tall. If anyone has one laying around the shop that they would like to sell, or an outlet for used older channel letters please let me know Thanks!

    Good opportunity to make a couple of bucks if you guys fabricate. We did exactly this for a customer a couple of years ago. Ended up builidng a letter out of sheet metal, painting it, then distressing it, let it rust for a bit outside then cleared it! I'm digging for photos but job carried a nice sized price tag. Letters were exposed neon and we added a flicker controller for the neon so it appeared to be broken.

    Thanks for the replys! I haven't checked with any of the locals as I didn't know how fond they would be working with another sign shop. I am leaving the fab of a new one to last resort as the customer has gotten all the other letters she needs over the years and they are all aged, so I didn't want mine to stick out like a sore thumb. I will call around to some of the local shops and check! Thanks again for the info.
