    Los Angeles'' famous Hollywood sign to get facelift

    One of the world''s most famous landmarks, the 82-year-old Hollywood sign perched high above Los Angeles, is to follow Tinseltown tradition and get a face lift, officials said.

    The giant letters spelling out the word that is synonymous with movie production will undergo a little restoration and some cleaning, followed by several weeks of painting for the first time in 10 years.

    Like many inhabitants of the city they overlook, the huge white letters that stand 13.6 meters in height and which are 10.9 meters wide originally need the occasional work done to maintain its appearance.

    Two firms Red Diamond Coatings, a manufacturer of architectural coatings, and Bay Cal Commercial Painting, are donating their time and materials to the project, which is set to start Monday.

    Between them, the firms will remove dirt, rust and bubbling from the letters before a rust inhibitor primer is applied along with 1,140 liters of a white, fire-resistant coating.

    The Hollywood Sign Trust is grateful to Red Diamond and Bay Cal for their generous contribution to help keep the Hollywood sign looking its best for years to come, said Chris Baumgart, chairman of the nine-member trust.

    The Hollywood sign was first erected in 1923 and was declared a Cultural Historical Monument in 1973.
