There is a freeway on-ramp very close to my house where Fahrenheit 9/11 signs were plastered all over a plywood construction fence. Here is what it looked like before:

One of those BC stickers on each of those nasty faces would make that a superior billboard.

You put those up with some kind of real strong epoxy or something, right?

They were applied over Michael Moore's face, which is very similar (greasy and stinky).

Would you take the B-C signs down and expose his mug again?

What are you guys thinking? RL was just drivin' down the road minding his own business and found someone had put new BC campaign signs up on M&M's posters so he just took a picture!

I wouldn't know, but I did examine the signs up close. It appears that whoever put them up initially tried to use a hammer and u-shaped nails, but the plywood had been treated or had metal against it or something so the nails would not penetrate. The culprit then appears to have gone to a back-up plan -- glue. I would speculate that Elmer's may have been used.

Answered this as you were asking.

Based on the patterns observable from the face of the signs, it appears that the culprit may have drizzled Elmer's glue in a grid pattern to cover most of the sign, then pressed it against the wall and applied pressure to all parts of the sign until a temporary bond was formed.

The culprit may have gone to the grocery store (or something) afterwards, then returned to make sure the bond was holding. But that's all speculation.

That sounds like the work of more than one person to me, if there is more than one person in Kali not an MM supporter. One gluing, and one sticking, to minimize exposure times.

You could also brush it on, like billboard pasters do, or roll it from a pan, if someone were reading this who was thinking of doing the same.

Good glue, but an epoxy is forever, BTW.

Yes, I was thinking of using a small 4" roller to apply the cement... something along the lines of an outdoor contact cement that can be applied beforehand, then just press signs onto the target for MUCH less exposure time. LOL

RL... looks like an excellent job. I wish I knew who did it to congratulate him or her on it. ;)

How would the culprit carry around 7 plastic signs covered with cement? I think you'd be bending over for Mr. Murphy with that plan. :cool:

Notice the parked cars, which offered concealment for glue application.

Don't you mean "COULD HAVE offered concealment for glue application"?

If we knew who might have done such a thing.

Easier to roll the wall with the glue, then stick the poster on it, if you were interested in speed.

You ever wonder what site the pics of your damaged sign are being posted on for bragging rights?

Do you really want to bandy words over that misstatement?

Your statement implied personal knowledge of the past action.

Will we next discuss the meaning of the word "IS"?

Sorry, I disagree. You can tell from the photo that they offered concealment. "Offered" and "provided" are different things.

P.S. What exactly do you mean by "is"?

Sir:

So you admit knowing that the cars were there when the glue was applied?

I would resubmit my original statement that a better choice of words would have been "COULD HAVE offered concealment for glue application", unless you have personal knowledge of said application.

IIRC, "IS" is third person, present tense of the English verb, "to be", unless you are a lawyer or a Democrat.

If that hooligan who did this horrible act of vandalism happens to be reading this thread, then shame, shame.

On a completely differant note, I've found out (the hard way, but that's another story completely) that super 77 spray adhesive works great. and when the victim tries to remove whatever was pasted on, it doesn't come off, very easily. Usually part's of the sign remain.

Ok, it would be really funny and would have launched a half dozen new threads here (__'S Jail Cam!) but for some odd reason, it's never happened before, I let judgement get in the way.

You are turning into a hell of a detective... amazing that you have identified the substance used for adhesion from a picture taken 30 yards away. Very impressive. Although you may want to manually turn off your auto flash in the future... someone might get the wrong impression of you taking pictures of what that vandal did. The flash doesn't help at that distance and it makes you stand out to the LIBS drving by there.

I have no idea what adhesive the girl (or maybe guy) used. I am just speculating based on the appearance of the signs. You know, hills and gullies and such.

Without the flash, I was getting black photos. Then again, the camera is still new to me, and I don't know what night shot features it has.
