What color neon was used in the large Sinclair neon signs ? I have a friend that wants to have one done in original color.
Thanks, Dave

Green ? White ? What color looks the best. I think that this is a 24' sign. Thanks, Dave

Probably whatever color he prefers, but this 'search' might give him some ideas...

There was limited colors available back in the 30s and 40s. Newer signs have more neon colors that can be chosen from. I usually limit my color choices by the vintage. A good neon shop should help you on selection by vintage.
