Heroic Ink - Illuminated address sign

I started fabricating an illuminated sign for the Mump and Hugo at the newly opened Heroic Ink at 409 Douglas Ave. in Ames, IA. I've been tattooed by both of these gentlemen and continue to refer people to them time and time again.

The sign is 20 ga. mild steel measuring 4" x 7" x 36". Next step is to weld together the seams, fabricate a cap and then figure out a piece of semi-transparent, red polycarbonate or a vinyl sticker that illuminates "4 0 9" vertically. Two fluorescent bulbs will be enclosed inside the box.

Thanks to Don Shearer for the use of the press brake...and the useful tips to go along with it.
