Today at 01:34 AM the island by sellersrodshop

finally started construction on my island , pumps & light pole project. its only been in planning stages for 16 yrs... i've mentioned it in other posts, but decided to compile everything in one thread that i can update as progress moves along. besides the island, i also have one of the rectangular sinclair signs to restore & hang on the building behind the pumps (gilbarco 96c's) & a matching gilbarco short commercial/farm pump that will probably be stenciled as a "super flame" kerosene pump.

set the pumps & light pole spaced where i wanted them & assembled the main form for concrete:


built templates for the mounting bolts to be set in the concrete based on height of pump bases:


dug the trench & laid the conduit for electricals today. the 96c's dont have an access door on the side like other pumps, but i'll be fabricating one to give access to a main switch to turn everything on/off together. i'll make a bracket to fasten the box to the frame once its in position.


i didnt get any pics of the pumps before i started teardown, but both are pretty solid & skins/doors are straight.



only issue was one had ad glass, the other didnt.


took about two hrs to convert the non ad glass doors to ad glass versions. i used the window frames from the other pump for layout. cut/snip/weld...





i used strips cut from the extra section that was removed to make the edge pieces that curve in towards the glass. the trickiest part is the ad glass opening is 1/8" shallower than the window opening, so had to trim that edge down a bit. pump frames head out to the powdercoater tomorrow.

Yesterday at 09:08 PM Old Shell Road Atlas? by Iceman

A co-worker brought this to the office today. The guy has had it for many years and was just wondering if anyone knew anything about it. Looks to be a leather bound road atlas? Dating appears to be 1948. I suppose this could also have been a salesman sample display of road maps since each map includes the shell logo and familiar red and gold colors?
