Default Answer from Michael...


In Oz it would be painting house numbers on gutters.

ALL streets on the Gold Coast have it done. Many need it redone. And it is being redone... by the council. The council hires contractors - or asks for tenders - to do it.

Personally, I don't know anyone who is doing it. I didn't even see the guys who did our street, and they were there on two days - one day to paint the background the next day to paint the numbers.

Here's something interesting... today I saw a crew of painters painting the poles of sign posts. Sign posts that hold stop signs, give way signs, parking signs, etc. I never really paid much attention before but gee there are a LOT of signs.

If you are truly interested in the gutter painting, I'll get the number of the business doing the council work down here and send it to you so you can speak with them about it. Maybe get some pointers on getting your council to pay you to do it :o)
