Tom welcome. If you have the decal(s) you are going to use, then take the colors for the pump off of them. Always a disappointment when your body color and decals don't even come close in tint color. Or do what I did; Paint the pump white, put the newer red and white Phillips decal on it, LOL. We do like photos so please share the "journey".

The reason you see more Wayne 60 pumps restored than #34 Tokheims is they produced more 60 pumps.
The #34 was only made for 4 years 1934-37, Wayne 60 was produced for 11 years starting in 1935 when the 12" computer was introduced into service. The 8" computer only had about a 6 yr production period.1932-37?
The 60 took a 12" computer, the 34 took an 8" computer.
By 1937 MOST pumps that took an 8" were phased out, possibly due to the fact that VEEDER ROOT may have not had planned to continue making the 8" and 10 3/4".
So with the 12" computer, form(of the cabinet) followed function.
By 1935 most NEW CABINET Designs did not have a smaller top housing for the smaller computer, and to continue using a smaller computer would have made it more inset into the cabinet making it harder to see from the side while filling a car.
The 12" computer became and is still the standard size today. It may well have been the actions of VEEDER ROOT that killed the pumps that used the 8" computer.

Love the 34's! I would really like to see those optional 34 faces reproduced. Looks like it could be done easily?

Thanks for all of the positive comments. The pump is in remarkably good shape for it's age. The computer will clean up easy with just a set of new numbers, The counters and reset work properly. The original colors were a red body with a green top and middle band. There were no other colors under any of the bolt on parts. I have been trying to figure out what it was used for when it was new. I have the ID book and the Restoration guide and have not been able to find this color combination. I thing the Polly gas colors will make a good conversation piece as Polly was not used around this area to my knowledge.
