Removal of AEI Optispec from old service station at wauchope NSW

I had my eye on these 2 AEI Remote Optispec's at a old service station at Wauchope which is now a a mower shop called one stop mower shop.

The one shown here is on the eastern side of the property and was tricky to remove due to power lines running from a power pole to the mower shop and the house next door but was removed successfully and im still alive to tell the tale :D

i contacted the owner and asked if he wanted the lights and he said if i get them down i can have them

so i hired a cherry picker and away i went

the poles they were attached to were not far from falling over as up the top where the outreach arm starts it was only being held by about 45% of the poll as the rest was completely rusted through (accident waiting to happen but happily averted)

these lights haven’t been used in over 20 years and are in excellent condition the original lenses are in great condition and the internals are like new the outside has lost its shine and was covered in black garbage from truck exhausts etc but cleaned up very well as you will see in the coming pictures

the bolts that hold the lights on the poll ripped off when i tried to loosen then so will have to get them re done so had no choice but to cut through the pole near the light

the rest of the poll was then removed as well as it was in a poor state due to the rust
