Hand painted parking signs

I was resonantly contacted to replicate a sign painted by the late Dave Connery, RIP. I can't remember the last time I used my air brush and it was fun to use it again.
The majority of the sign is all hand painted the boarder, letters and old GMC are all hand painted and some custom mixed colors to match the original sign, with highlights done using an air brush. I painted the signs one color/element each night in assembly line fashion getting faster each night, the finish photo below is out in the garage as that's where I air brushed the highlights on the hand painted signs.

Reflecting on the project a lot of time was wasted setup and taring down each night as it was just to cold to paint in the garage and not having dedicated studio has me hunting around for things like an hour long search for the air brush...
