Has any one ever built a rat rod gas pump? Or put an artistic twist on a pump? Sure would be neat to see pictures if there is any out there.
Thanks

I did not save any pictures but I have seen a primer pump with flames, one with flowers and trees on it, one covered in leather in a western cowboy theme and just crazy painted like an abstract painting.


I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]

A flat black pump with flames topped with a Ford globe, sitting in the shop by your rod/muscle car would look pretty cool IMO.

DON'T KNOW WHAT A "RAT ROD" GAS PUMP WOULD LOOK LIKE REALLY. PERHAPS OVERDONE WITH MISC NON-RELATED ITEMS SUCH AS SKULLS, DEER RACKS, BEER KEGS, HUB CAPS, ETC?

MY NEPTUNE RED SEAL 855 IS DEF RATTY, BUT DOESN'T QUALIFY AS RODDY LOL!

You talking about something like this...

http://www.hotrod.com/featuredvehicles/hdrp_0704_1937_ford_patina_three_window/index.html

I think it would be fun to do one with some cool patina. I don't think any of my pumps have "good" patina. Plus it's something different. Would be pretty easy to do too. Just put different colors of paint down, and then wet sand the areas you want to bleed through and when it's done, just put some flattner in the clear to keep if that way.

I was hoping that custom pumps would be a pump of the month at some time. I remember there was a guy in CA named Gas Pump Ronnie that did some great custom jobs. His were tastfully and professionally done with a themed twist to them. Maybe this thread can bring some of those custom pump pictures out.

LURKER, CUSTOM PUMPS AND CUSTOM CARS TO ME DON'T FIT INTO THE RAT ROD SCENE. I SAY THEY ARE TWO DIFFERENT ENDS OF THE SAME STICK.

A GAS PUMP DONE IN SEMI-GLOSS BLACK PRIMER AND PINSTRIPED IN RED & WHITE WITH A SKULL AND CROSS BONES FANTASY LOGO ON THE DOOR WOULD BE RAT ROD.

DICE'S PUMP IS TOO GLOSSY AND PURDY AND SHOULD BE IN A SHOWROOM WITH A
CLASS OF HIGH-DOLLAR CUSTOM CLASSIC HOT RODS!

Here is one of Ronnie's Pumps
Check out the claw feet in the base.

Hey Doc,,,
That rat rod pump would need oil all over the base and maybe some black soot????

That is a beautiful flame job. A lot of people try and fail at painting flames. That one looks great! The Bengal pump is incredible too! I've never been a fan of the rat rod look but I do like the picture Doc took.
