Workers use window-cleaner style platforms as they strip down the 50-foot (15-meter) tall letters, power washing the corrugated iron and apply nearly 400 gallons of fresh paint while restoring the Hollywood sign on October 26,2012 in Hollywood, California. The iconic Hollywood sign overlooking Tinseltown is getting its biggest renovation for 35 years, to prepare it for its 90th birthday next year. The operation, which started earlier this month, will take 8-10 weeks to restore the sign to its bright white glory atop Mount Lee in the Hollywood Hills north of Los Angeles.
