I wanted something different for my Shell collection. I decided to do a Silver Shell but wanted the pump yellow like any other Shell pump would be. I have seen pumps done in Pogo`s Silver Shell and they were blue, silver or a combination of blue and silver. The is not a show car restoration. It is powder coated with all original trim. Some of the trim is dinged but all the sheet metal was straightened, filed and sanded smooth before powder coating. Comments are welcome even if you do not like it. Every one has different tasts and opinions.

Great looking pump! I would have never thought of doing that color combination but it is really beautiful. Always liked those silver Shell globes. GB

Very nice, powder coat is a lot of work to make it look good and you seemed to carry that off well.

...I should say that the paint job, etc. look very well done - but, ehh, fantasy restos are not my cup of tea - but it seems like it wouldn't be hard to change the globe and decals to make it 'correct'...what is that, a 34A?
