The Machine that Painted the Street Signs

Workers used this machine to paint the signs on the street. They finished using white paint and moved on to yellow. I didn't see them use either one! They were finishing up when I came back with the camera.

Click on the picture to enlarge it. There is a flame under the paint. Can you see it leaping up?

The paint was loaded into the machine from the truck. It oozed down those chutes. It emptied from the chute into a vat.

Here is a close-up of the chutes on the truck.

The paint was then moved into a smaller vat by another shorter chute. The paint was heated in the smaller vat.

This is the gas tank.
