Thanks for the complements. It was fun doing. I did not have to worry about it being nice like a restored pump and still came out looking good.

I am not sure how long it took. Scraping, degreaseing, removing and installing the sheet metal, painting the ground area, making the lights work and installing the decals must have been ten hours.

The decals are new. They are water transfer and can be bought from Mike Slama or Vic`s

Nice cleanup and what a great color! Why anyone would want to overpaint that is beyond my comprehension...

Great Resto!

How were you able to keep from taking the first layer of paint off?

Hey POL, it was mostly luck. I kept an eye on it when I had the agressive degreaser on it. On one side the original paint did start to lift off.
