All done!! Very happy with it. Made a couple little mistakes but it's all good!
Was really surprised how the frame moved from I guess the heat of the powder coat process. I had put in the holes to mount the sign and it fit just fine. When I went to put the sign on today it was off by about 0.080-0.100 corner to corner. Luckily the sign was missing a grommet anyway, so I just elongated the hole a bit.
I was going to get fancy mounting the LED wiring, but it's all pre-length stuff and can't be shortened and tightened up. So I just left it hanging.
Still need to clean all the tape off the bottle caps.

Because India it seems is the origin of many reproduction signs lately.So you're attention to detail on this,will now surely get you on their radar,thus the hypothetical phone call to you to ask you how you did it so they too can copy this & sell it on eBay.

Lol!! I gotcha now.
Although, other than the sign and bottles, this is technically a fantasy/interior decorator piece. grin
