We have 3 sections of the mast left, not 2.

And a 'black' cladded WTC would look depressing.

Credits go to STR.

And any idea if they're currently installing the mast LED's?

The LED fixtures for the mast have been installed for Level 27 platform (section 14, if you will). Level 31 (section 15) was supposed to be done by yesterday (4/20) AM. I've seen section 14 lit up and it looks awesome, but haven't seen 15 yet. 14, 15, and 16 were all supposed to have the LED fixtures installed before lifting them up to the top. All of the other fixtures for the sections below these are going to be installed in the air.

The bottom portion of the mast (sections 1-8) up to the guy-wires junction are going to be lit with a different fixture type than the sections above. Those fixtures for the bottom won't even arrive until mid-May, and they'll most likely take longer to install/aim than the ones above.

I'll post photos when I get the clearance to do so.

This is one of my wallpapers, an incredible render. In my opinion the WTC would look far better in black

It's the Johnny Cash signature series tower collection, now yours for a low, low price of billions. But wait, there's more, order now and receive a 2nd set of towers at no extra cost, just pay processing and handling

That were storm clouds. And the render wasn't made by him but by STR on SSP
