So I bought this pump back around 1990 from Terry St Claire, an original branded Gulf Erie fig. 10 I immediately stripped it and started restoring it, for one reason or another it just kept getting shifted to the back and other Restorations put in front of it. With the virus and a little more time I decided I had to get it done now. I finally finished the body work, paint and assembly, probably the world's longest pump restoration.

I am slow cooking a pump resto myself. Not sure if I can stretch it out to 30 years mind you. Will need the grandson to finish it then.
Very nice resto regardless.
