Thanks guys. I do like unrestored pumps but this one was not nice enough to leave alone. Some one had sandblasted and primed the upper part except one face bezel before I got it. I tried to make it as accurate as possible. I found evidence that it had a black stripe surrounding the face bezel. I decided not to put it on. Some did not have it. Here is a picture of the unblasted bezel with some of the repaint chipped off.

Dave, I did not remember who I bought the truck from. Glad I got it from an oldgasser. It goes well with my Buddy L Shell tanker. Here is the Firestone with an original Firestone store catalog.

Here are some in progress pictures. There are a lot of parts and screws. There are 88 screws just on the out side of the case.
