Some really nice people who came to visit. I have a clam if you would like to use it for the picture that is still good. Screwed up my back Tuesday, but might be able to drive it up. Can't remember where you are at though. Let me know.

Just a bit of advice.

Do one side per day.

Bunch up a towel, lay the clamshell on it and make sure you throughly soak the letters.

Install each letter and daub off the excess water with a paper towel.

Then walk away until the next day and repeat.

This gives the first side plenty of time to fully dry.

Later . . .

Jim

Hello All,

As some of you know my best friend and Dad passed away a week ago today. Thanks to all to all of your kind wishes and support. The oldgas community is very loving. Our dream was to restore the very first pump we bout together over 30 yrs ago and take a picture with it together . A G&B T-176 that was Super Shell. Sadly he passed prior to getting the pump back from the painters. I just tonight finished 90% of the assembly. I need to find an nice pair of proper gallon markers. Attached are a couple pics.

Andrew, I’m very sorry to hear about your father. Like I mentioned above, I'm sure your Dad is extremely proud of you for taking an interest in this hobby, just as he did.

The pump looks great by the way.

Prayers to you and your family,
Steve

Andrew, My condolences to you and your family for the loss of your father. I'll echo what Speedracer said, I'm sure your Dad appreciated your efforts greatly and was very proud of you. The pump does look great.


Regards, Jim
