Crosswalk Signal Display Piece

This was a project that originally started as a restoration. My boss had an older crosswalk signal he got from somewhere. It was in terrible shape. I was able to talk him into restoring it with no end date as it was an on-the-side project.

I completly sand blasted the heavily oxidized housing. It was painted with automotive quality glossy metalic black from our in-house paint shop.

Next was mounting it on a dedicated board for display purposes. I was in too much zone that I forgot to take picts of how that was done.

Lastly was the electrical. The switch assembly was done with some cool old-school knife switches. The power is run from a 12Vdv power cube. All wires were hidden. The lighting was converted to LED.

It was cool because everyone in the shop, minus the boss, threw in some cash for parts and time. Everyone was happy with how it came out. We presented it to him as a Christmas present for all his hard work in upgrading the shop in 2017.
