Hollywood Sign Unveiled After Major Makeover
360 gallons of bright white paint were just used in refurbishing the Hollywood sign in its biggest makeover in 35 years- just in time for the 90 year anniversary.
Workers used window-cleaner like platforms to strip down, powerwash, and paint the 50-foot tall letters.
The paintjob cost roughly $175,000; $140,000 paid for by Sherwin-Williams, the paint company who's paint was used. This is the same company that provides paint for the Golden Gate Bridge.
Back in 2010, the sign was almost lost when the surrounding land was about to be sold to developers. Thankfully, Hugh Hefner, Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and governor Arnold Schwarzenegger helped secure it.
