Sorry if i missed the point somewhere, just noticed the chrome trim wasn't replaced on the restoration, could you explain why? I have noticed mine is loose, as i said i have never been inside it so unsure how they are fixed. Are they popped in on studs?

Great looking pump! I'm restoring the same one now. May I ask if that is a sticker in the middle of the pump (Phillips 66 logo) or is it painted?

The 'chrome' pieces along the sides of the window are stainless, at least the Canadian ones are, and are held in place with a bracket that slides into the back and has two threaded studs and nuts that hold it onto the pump. A lot of patience, time, and picking and filing can bring back most of the dented ones. I used a small hammer and flat screwdriver working the backside and filing down any front areas that were raised too high and then finally using a number of finer grits of paper and compounds for polish. It is tedious but when I did mine I didn't have any other sources for replacement. It is a great looking pump and I still regret selling the three that I restored. Cheers, Don.
