Default What is a CA FFL required to display or post?

What is a CA FFL required to display or post?
More research of old posts (both FFL and General forum) and ATF and CA DOJ references. I include license copies and signs.
As you guys advised in other posts, I also ordered signs and some basic forms from Jennie: http://www.rkffl.com/

I still would like to document the requirements for the postings and make a short list
Here is what I found.
Seven postings seem to be required.

Two postings seem to be required, but I am unable to find an ATF or CA DOJ reference.
Does the ATF or CA DOJ require posting of the business license?
Does ATF require posting of Publication 3317.2 (Pages 27-28)?

Did I miss one?
Required Signs

1) ATF FFL License
2) ATF Juvenile Handgun Possession Sign
3) CA DOJ Warning about U18, hand wash, and 30 days
4) CA DOJ Government fees and FFL fees
5) Municipality or County Business License
6) ATF Publication 3317.2 (Pages 27-28)

7) CA BOE Reseller's Permit
