Restoring a 1964 Paul Bunyan

The giant fiberglass statues of midcentury American advertising are becoming more and more rare, so it's a treat any time you see one these days. American Giants is a company that finds and restores these iconic statues, but it's not easy. Watch how they take an abandoned, weather-beaten Paul Bunyan statue in two pieces and do a complete refurbishing. They gave him new feet, stronger bones, and a face that could light up a room! The result is stronger and shinier than the original statue, but still very much recognizable as an original Paul Bunyan. While the process is impressive, the before-and-after pictures at the end are amazing. (via Nag on the Lake
