Not really, Stephanie.  The wire is so thin you'd never see it.  You leave
enough space between the windings and from the street, you'd barely notice
that there was any difference in intensity.

Now getting him to let you mess with his sign is the REAL problem.

I think if you really want this fixed, go to the store owner and offer to
buy him a brand spanking new sign.  It is not a cheap solution, but that
should definitely fix your problem and might help the pizza store get more
customers with a nicer sign.
