  1. I did it around the whole porch. Mine had dark brown lattice on front and side. I replaced part of side and made a door with padlock. The sun screen worked great to block the sun and noises people.:) I also had other items like wood and stuff mine was 30’ long by 10’. Also the porch above was covered and the long side faces due south. I will try and remember to look on my old phone and see if I have picture of it.
  2. At my old house I had a same type of storage issues. I found black plastic caught a lot of moisture and the blow molds ended up getting black mold inside of them and on outside. I spent some time cleaning them not fun. After that I got sun screen to attach to under part of porch that block the Sun light and let air flow though it. I also put out some brick put pallets on them to keep molds off the ground the red clay stains snowman quick:) Also I just put bags over the top of each to keep dirt and bird stuff off. Also I live in Georgia and it’s hot rainy and steamy. good luck
  3. Any update? I would be fine with unpainted molds I have purchased some for Christmaslightscrration. And I did not mind painting them I did my own colors. Also the Noel lamp is so cool and could be wall mounted or post or maybe hung up. The guy at CLC would not tell me were his were made but I think they were made at Cado because the plastic has the same issues. Both have a tan tint when lit.
  4. What’s everyone Christmas display looking like. I been working in the back yard on mine. I live HOA and can’t put out in front yard until week of thanksgiving. If weather is good I will start pulling it to front yard on Monday.
  5. I hate to here that! Its very sad to hear. Some one gone so soon. That had such a love of Christmas & Blow Molds. I think your right I looked at the video of pre-action and it looks to be the same collection of Blow molds. I alway wish a collection of that size could be keep together. But I been to action and things are broken up. 😢
  6. I used small binder clip and trash bag tie to hold wire/socket it worked. Until I was able to find some clips. I have gotten some new clips pretty quickly from the link below. www.blowmoldstore.com
  7. That’s true I think with the amount they have I could see them wanting more varieties of carolers. Also I know the flesh tones and gold paint are hard to find spray paint that matches. With yellow gloves instead that cuts down on the amount of repaint time. Looks like gold parts have also been painted yellow. With the amount they had it make since to me if they just made a set of stencils for repaint job. And toke more time making heads more unique. Below is from 1970 Poloron catalog.
  8. Found this today looking for something else. It the largest set Poloron carolers I have ever seen. youtube:
  9. These are timers I use I like being able to control time on/off. I have used photocell type before and I did not like the results to me they came on to late.
  10. I found my folder with more info on UV paint. Repainting a Blow Mold HU.docx
  11. I would for sure repair it hopefully the plastic around it is in good shape. I added a pdf that I have used by Carrie on repairing damage like yours. Hope it helps. Blowmold-repair-tutorial.pdf
  12. None of mine have yellowed and some have been done 10years. My can say it in fine print. I did look up other brand that I used and it says on front non-yellowing.
  13. I used UV spray paint for about 10years. It’s work well for me. Its hard to tell if it work’s because it clear. They only way I can tell is I missed spraying UV paint on a few molds about 8 years ago and I could tell a difference after a few years of use. Tips that have worked for me. If I repainted a blow mold I spray it down about week after with UV spray paint. Never mix different brands of spray paint they will run together. Also only put 1-2 coats on a blow mold of UV spray paint any more and I have found it does not look as good. To me the gloss works great and brings back some life to a
  14. I toke a picture of the one I have and use. They also sale it at Lowe’s and Home Depot In spray paint section it’s different brands.
