It has not been touched up. If the one blemish on each side were touched up it would be difficult to notice. The pole is solid with only surface rust. There is absolutely no serious rust. Could easily be cleaned up and painted.
The mounting base of the pole measures 20" by 16 1/2". I have a tractor to load sign onto a trailer. It will fit on a 16' foot trailer with the back end hanging out slightly.
