I started chipping and scraping on this tall 39 to get rid of the white. I got it down to the first repaint. I used some degreaser the ate the first repaint off. There was an area that was ground down before it was painted white so I had to get some paint made and spotted it in. A couple decals and lead signs and it is done.

Great Job! Those are all very nice. I really like the way the Shell pump turned out. Is that Shell decal a reproduction by the way? If so I would like to know where to get one.
