Any use for the STOP sign?

I was wondering about the possible uses for the stop sign and associated parts. Mines just sitting here since I pulled it off.
If I can't think of any way to use it, it's likely free to a good home! ;)

Mine's hanging on the wall of my office. One day I will get around to hooking a power supply to the lights in it. I miss my bus, but the sign is a fun wall hanger.

There's an idea... but I'm downsizing big time.
I figured as often as I see folks "reinventing the wheel", or trying to, I may as well ask what uses anyone has found or thought of.
If anyone wants it, let me know.

My plan is to sand it, paint it then stencil on it welcome to the Turners & extend it while camped

I thought of something like that, too. But I'm trying to make it visually "less a schoolbus".

I asked this question too when I got mine off. I am saving the motor. It is pretty strong with the levers. Maybe for a power mode to tilt the bed for access to the area under it. I plan to find some good used hinges from the junkyard and create a bed frame that tilts.


The lower portion of the headboard will be accessible from the rear door.
