Hey guys, this afternoon I finished restoring a Bowser 585, which is my first attempt at a pump. It has been a blast, and I was able to do the entire thing myself, including dis-assembly, paint/rust stripping, bodywork, paint and assembly. Both my grandfathers worked at Phillips in Bartlesville, OK for 40+ years. One of them was primarily in purchasing for gas stations, including pumps like this one. It was originally a Phillips pump, and with my family's history with the company, it was a no brainer to go back that way.

Many thanks to all who post here and answer questions. It has been a wealth of information!

Thanks for the compliments. I didn't really know much about the Flite-Fuel logo, but knew I hadn't seen it much. Possibly could be added later.

Hey, Beng2121,

If you don't mind, could you provide the brand, paint type and color code for the Phillips 66 orange paint. I assume the black paint is just 'black'.

Great looking pump!!

Thanks,

Larry
