Check the sides of your lamp and you will see the name cast into the lamp above the glass.

Please verify your lamp style and model before purchasing any replacement products.


Finish
We use 2 coats of original Rust-Oleum gloss black and red spray paint to protect the mailbox and lamp post. Once the mailbox and lamp post have been scraped, sanded and cleaned with a degreasing soap, we spray two coats of Rust-Oleum black and red.

Flags
I have yet to find the perfect flag. But here are two that work.

PostFlag.com: This one has 3M adhesive , but we drill the mount and add a stainless steel bolt directly into the mailbox.  We have had the adhesive fail on a couple of boxes.

Mailbox Numbers – 3D Acrylic

mailbox-and-volleyball-2014-10-14-014

Mailbox Numbers -3D Acrylic

We order the 3D Acrylic numbers from https://www.signlettersource.com/

These numbers are not cheap & not fast since they are cut to order.

Here are the Specs:

1.5″ x 1/4″ Flat Cut Acrylic, Metallic Gold (Color #2756), using the Goudy Extra Bold font, with No mounts, and No Pattern


Installation:

We use a 2 part epoxy to glue the letters to the box. We have also used a clear construction adhesive that worked well.
We pre-layout the numbers using a ruler and use clear packaging tape on top to hold the layout.
1.    Lay the numbers out as you want them to read with correct spacing.
2.    Next, lay packaging tape, with extra tape on each end, to over the numbers and press down. Now the numbers are stuck to the tape in the correct spacing.
3.    Apply adhesive to the back of the numbers and apply to the mailbox. Using the extra tape, stick it to the mailbox itself on each end to hold the numbers in place while the glue dries.
4.    NOTE: Check that the numbers lay flush on the mailbox before applying tape and adhesive. Some numbers, like the 4, need to be sanded on the top back edge to fit flush on the mailbox.

Decided not to do it yourself….
