Have you tried Google? I see several hits in JAX, although I have no personal knowledge of them. Just a thought.

I know one guy that used to here in Jax, but the building he was in caught fire awhile back so not sure about any of the others. Would like to find someone who comes "highly recommended" and can do a "vintage" Ford sign "just right".

Google sign shops in your town.
You will certainly get a suggestion on who to call.
They are still out there, but you may be surprised that you end up going to an artist instead of a sign shop. You are looking for someone who knows argon and the other gases that make the color, and maybe not who makes signs.
My 3 by 5 Ford oval was done by a neon artist and not a sign shop.

I had a neon sign repaired by a reputable local sign shop here in the northeast. They took the time to order non-standard tube for the neon and they did excellent work.
