I finally finished this pump after it sat in primer for almost two years. It is kind of plain with out the ad glass, but I have nine of them with the four ad glass so it in nice to have one a little different. Most people like the ad glass version better. What do you think, too plain or cool?

Very nice; I like it because it is different. Also, the unique shape of the Cities Service Globe adds to the overall "Koolness" of the pump and makes up for the "effect" of the ad glass model. Great looking pump.

There's a lot of beauty in simplicity. I like it. Did you say that you have nine others? Really?

C'mon Matt! Ya gotta love it done in Cities Service!
I think everyones comments really describe how good it looks! The lack of ad glass is a refreshing change and really gives it a pleasing appearance! Glad you chose Cities Service!

I like it, very simple yet makes a great statement with the globe, decal, and black and white color scheme.

Thanks for all the positive coments. I thought there my be a couple negative ones and that would be OK, everyone is intitled to their opinion. This is my first white pump. My first attempt a "clean look pump" was my Tok 36 in cream. It is not the correct color for Seaside, but I was going for the "clean look".
