Well, I am moving in at last. It has been a real project and an enjoyable one most of the time.
The floor is from U-coat-It. It is an epoxy based floor coating that really is'nt that hard to put on. I would not reccommend it for inside a home especially in a basement. The fumes from the clear coat are extremely potent. I was afraid for someone to light a cigarette with-in 20 yards of the building when I was putting it on.
I am having a ball moving in and setting up displays and shelving for my collection. So far I have put the restored Vendo Coke machine in and my tall 39 done in Pure ofcourse. Most of my Pure cans and a showcase filled with little Pure give aways.
The whole thing turned out even better than I expected. It was a lot of work but it sure was worth it. I have had some visitors, mostly neighbors and friends and they have all said they had no idea how much it really looks like the real thing.
Thanks to all of you who have followed me along here with my dream, the folks who have posted pics for me and all who have inspired me with the great compliments. This site and the people who post on here are the greatest.
Thanks again,
Terry

Chris, I don't think I will put much outside. It is too tempting for the neighborhood kids to throw rocks at.
Our school district is in trouble now with money woes. They say the state gives $5000 per student and I would hate to see the school system lose anymore if I would catch a kid destroying something out here.

Well guys, I took the Rapid-Dayton visable up and a Tokeim 300 to be restored. I can't wait to get them both back and in the station.
I will post some pics when they return.

Hey Terry. Good thing you brought it back up, I was following your build, as well as other too, and have missed seeing it for a while. Please post more pics so we can drool over them. I think I can speak for everyone on here that it's been quite enjoyable watching you build your dream. Keep it goin'!
Ken.

Terry...just found your post and will need to visit since we are very close to you in Dover...I can obtain what is supposedly the last Pure advertising billboard in Ohio but it's a huge one...maybe 20 feet long with lots of panels...

***WOW*** I'm just seeing this for the first time, how did I miss this? What a great place to hang out, work on cars and sip a few beers. I guess if these aren't around anymore, make your own!! But it DEFINATELY needs pumps outside. Just put some junk ones out that you don't mind if they get ruined. Just a thought.
