Unfortunately, working 2 jobs for the last few months has drastically slowed progress to a crawl. I'm taking a week long vacation at the end of May and I intend on getting back into the swing of things. Would truely enjoy seeing any pics. of yours in action. I did get time to sand blast the doors when I was blasting a month or so ago. After blasting the one door, it's become apparent that nature really did a number on it. So, finding another one has become my preferred choice of restoration. Actual reconstruction of the original is a job that could get VERY labor intensive. I will get photos up once I get some progress worth showing. Thanks for inquiring and rekindling my spirit!

Couple more pics:
Just put the 1st color on the top shelf to see how it looked.
I'd love to be able to find some new window trim...

Very nice. Nice straight pretty doors! I you could do me a favor. No hurry and when you have time, can you get me some good detail pics of those closeoff pieces in your last photo. Mine are in real bad shape and I could use something to go by with some dimensions. I believe I can fab. these out of aluminum or at least something close that will act in the same manner.

I'll see what can I do tomorrow after all the easter festivities. Most of mine are good except the bottom ones. The channel that goes inside the window rubber is shot. I'll never find another set. There is a guy by me who does tin work I was thinking of seeing what he would charge to make a set for me.

If all goes well I'll have paint on it in another week to ten days. It's gonna be a Richfield pump. Not sure why but thats what I chose.

Nochevys, keep us updated with your progress. I enjoy seeing them as you are ahead of me in progress and it's interesting to see what I should be aiming for. I'm going for a Lion gasoline outfit myseld. Initially is was going to be a Cities Service look since that's what it really was back in the day but getting everything just the way I wanted it was going to get costly so I got out the guide to pump restorations and started thumbing pages till I found something that seemed to fit the pumps lines like I wanted. If you want, keep posting up here and we'll keep them confused. grin LOL! By the way, the picture of your frame uprights on the base. The front right post has what appears to be a different bracket at the bottom. I was wondering what the reason is.

Is this the bracket you are refering to?
It is for the hose return also pictured but was trashed when I got the pump. Not sure how I'm going to fix this yet. Will be a after i'm done project. I have all the pullys for the return just not sure how it all went together because I didn't take it apart.

I recognize the pulley and spring.....at least what was left of mine! Apparently that bracket was completely rotted of my unit because I do not remember it. The farther I get into this the more a realize how bad this thing was and I imagine another year or 2 would have seen this thing gone from memory. Keep us posted, though. The Richfield blue looks good on the base.
