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.

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.
