A few months ago I purchased an old Shell oil pump from a guy who lived close to me. The pump supposedly was from an old Shell station here locally who owned quite a few stations and was a friend of the family. The pump was in need of restoration very badly so I let my friend and fellow oldgasser mcguffeyd1 do the job. He shot me a photo of the finished product today he did an amazing job. Also special thanks to Matt Alverez who helped id the color.

Thanks Randy. Appreciate the positive comments. I enjoy doing it as it gives a new life to a hunk of rusty metal. Worth the effort for future generations to enjoy.
