          Ummm, Ryan, they spodaB RED, same color as the late model boxes.
          Bases should be grouted to the foundations as well.

          You did remember to install the conduit?

            Here in the city of Beaumont they were painted silver. These are certainly not silver, but the guy who approved the color already admitted that foul up.

            There is conduit in there, two in each base.

              Most probably originally coated with powdered aluminum mixed into gloss varnish by a skilled craftsman.

              Later coats may have been "aluminum paint" partially stirred by a lazy civil servant or contracted painter.

              Personally, I'd still be pitching a hissey for proper gas ligiting on top. Even if you have to remanufacture the fixture and stick a LED inside.

                The city agreed to buy us the globes, but they had to match the rest of the regular light poles. Fine. Whatever. As long as I ain't paying for it.

                But if this had been in the oaks historic district or in old towne, they would've **** sure made us return it to its original condition and function. Funny how those rich folks can dictate what others do.
