    Even if that sign is all aluminum, which I doubt, that thing is pretty heavy. OUCH!

    About 20 years ago I went to see Freddy vs Jason with a couple of friends at a movie theater and ran into Ricky. When I came out my truck was stolen. I'm really not joking, that actually happened.

    Pretty sure that's how they do them here, in the USA, as well. Well, except that the measurements are SAE. Our version of Imperial for automotive stuff. 1/8" ≈ 3mm
