Barely a mural

This is the entrance to Firestone Flintstone Tire & Auto Care in Bedrock South Tucson:
Last time, in the post Running along 3rd Avenue, we saw a mural on the east wall of this business. What caught my eye here were the painted numbers on both sides of the gate. They're in some of the same colors used in the mural, so I wonder if the muralist painted these too?

If you aren't familiar with the Flintstones’ family car, look at the Flintmobile page. The first paragraph says:
The Flintmobile (also known as the Cavemobile) is a Canopysaurus and an iconic vehicle owned by Fred Flintstone, featured in the original series and franchise, The Flintstones by Hanna-Barbera.
I was there on November 27, 2022… and you'll be glad to know that I won't try any Flintstone jokes.
