I know I said to sand the edges due to the paint but you need to very lightly touch up the edges now. If not, the beige color will show on the sides of the doors when installed.

Now for the fun part.

I had a friend, now deceased, who was a photographer/lighting expert for Disney World. His name was Ross Goodenough. Yes, that was his real name! He was the main man who made the decision how to light a Disney scene.

His gave me a color wheel of colors. There are over 137 colors in this pad. The colors represented all had a filter of that color that fit over the lights in the displays.



I'm going to fast forward here a bit and just say the colored Mylar/Actetate samples make great stained glass.

Many stores had stained transom windows above the entry doors. At least they did as I remember growing up in the South. Grumpy's is no different.

I cut the colored acetate to fit the small (very small) transom windows.

The red and blue will be on the barber shop.

As they say, this is worth a thousand words!



Here is how the front looks with the transom glass and exterior door.



Done for tonight.

Bob,

Thank you for stopping by and posting a comment. That's a perfect store front for stained glass transoms windows.
