Parking meter DUNCAN
We bought this parking meter over the internet from the USA (South Carolina) from the city of Iva. The clock in the photos looked a little different than the one that came to us. The one we picked up was in original condition, it was all worn and the paint was mostly flaking off. And that’s exactly what we wanted. The plan was that we would renovate them ourselves. The ones that came to us had already been re-sprayed. What now?! The paint will have to come off. The clocks were bought without a stand-without a platform to stand on. It was missing the keys and the coin jar as well.
We will remove the surface red paint by sanding and sandblasting. We will repair the dented parts. The internal mechanism is fully functional, tested and it remains without renovation. The colour will be changed. To what? Let yourself be surprised.
The renovation is scheduled for early 2023.
In the gallery you can now see the original (purchased) condition and condition after renovation done by us.
