I just got mine. It looks great - better than in the photos. While the sign is black plastic, the letters are white plastic (versus paint). There is also surface texture that you cannot see in the photos. Installation is super fast meaning it takes longer to remove the glass than to install the mod.
Kpull has done a great job. This is an inexpensive, must have mod. Thanks Keith!

Thanks Scott! Enjoy.

The majority of the list is completed and has shipped or will be shipping tomorrow.
If anybody has any issues whatsoever, let me know and I will get it resolved.

Thanks everybody!

Awesome, thanks for posting pics!.

There were a few packages that were sent out under postage... (Issue fixed now) I would fire the girl in the shipping department but its my wife.

Some have made it through no issue, some have shown up with postage due to you, and one has been shipped back to me. I apologize for the screw up. If you receive postage due let me know and I will compensate you for it.

As you get them, let me know if you can.

Thanks everybody!!!

Nice work! Not trying to being critical of what is obviously a fantastic piece of work but I have a couple of thoughts/suggestions for your consideration.

The black is a bit dark, any thoughts of doing a brown sign with white lettering?

Any chance you could run some with the lettering a smaller size, with more space between it and the border around the sign? I find the current version a bit cramped and the lettering a bit too large vs the sign next to it.

This is an excellent mod! PM sent for a Gold one!

Looks much better in person.

Got my mod in earlier this week, thanks Keith it looks awesome, love the idea of it being true to the show! My taf is much happier with it.

FYTR, I can make it in any color you want really. Of course I don't have brown at the moment. But can get it no problem. I could also try it in grey and maybe airbrush some black on it. Would have to play around with the lettering, but honestly unless I buy smaller nozzles for my printer not sure how much smaller I could make them.

I'll screw around and see what I can do for you. Be a week or two

Cool. Hopefully you get some enjoyment out of messing around with this and it's not just for my benefit.

Keith- Was thinking of this thread and found it again. Ever consider making something to cover the switches , IE graves, or a new idea?

#82 3 years ago

Is this mod still being sold/produced? I love that there's *finally* a sign that actually looks like the one from the show. Sent a PM but hadn't heard back - life happens... I'm wondering if anybody else has grabbed one lately?

#84 3 years ago

Sorry guys. I have been swamped with life. I will get some going this weekend and start responding shortly. If you have a pm out to me you will be contacted this weekend.

Great mod !

i want one please

#86 2 years ago

I'd love to see OP make more, awesome MOD.
Would also like for him to come up with other neat ideas for the switch covers. A row of books on bookcase could look great and other witchcraft books next to this MOD.

#87 2 years ago

Dragon - Will send you a PM shortly.

Eric - Let me see what I can come up with for you I have stared at the switches and have been thinking what to do with them but nothing has really jumped out at me. Working on something for BSD at the moment as well.

Started work on a rev 2 - lighted version of the Thing sign. Lots of work to go yet, but thought I would share.

The hope would be to have a green led strip and a yellow led strip inside, having difficulty finding the yellow. Might have to use white with a yellow filter.

Starting to model. Will take some time but the journey is the fun part. Quick clip of a test print. Front was just laying on the normal lights.
