I bought this lubester about 2 months ago, and the Bennett pump last Sunday. I noticed on both that paint was covering a sticker on the lubester and that a decal was covering another decal. I had some extra time today , so went out and carefully removed the paint off the Lubester and peeled off the faded decal on the pump and these are what I got.

Anyone know what timeline the decal would have been used on the pump???

And im planning on leaving the Lubester like it is, anyone have advice on the best way to coat the mobiloil decal to preserve it as is ?

Thanks Larry

The tiger gasoline decal is on both sides, and it looks like the Enco Extra is a seperate decal above the Blue Tiger decal both sides of the pump has the same decals. The top Enco Extra decal actually looks like its covering another decal, but I think ill leave it as is for the time being.

I just used a flat razer blade scraper knife like shown in the picture. I was real careful on a low angled push/scrape carefull not to dig in.
