Here is a fiberglass sign featuring the Howard Johnson’s Pie Man and Little Boy that we restored a few years back. These once graced the entrance to every Ho Jo’s in the country. Restoration is pretty straightforward; a very light sand or bead blast, body filling, sanding, priming, sanding again and finally, painting. This is really a great piece of Americana when it’s all finished.
