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?

Thanks everyone.

Craig, the powder coat is easy, I just drop it off and then pick it up in color. The hard part was getting the sheet metal straight with no body filler. It was nice to start but had plenty of little dings and small dents.

Mark, I agree with you on the fantasy, but I really liked this globe and tried to make it look like it could have been the real deal.

Lance, thanks. Not sure if I made it better because it is a cool globe by it self with no body. I do like it with the yellow.

Matt, forgive my metallurgical NON- knowledge here , but how does one remove EVERY imperfection with out using at least some vintage Body Lead instead of plastic body filler when one would Powder coat ? The work you did meanwhile is certainly impressive ! Ed Shaver


see ya on the road folks !

I appreciate the patience and skill that goes into "pick & file" metalfinishing to straighten metal without filler. Nice job all the way around. The Silver Shell logo on the Shell yellow jumps out and looks great to me.

...the clockface threw me, hadn't seen it before - or maybe it's in The Book and I just never thought to look for it...guess the 'A' is because it's a clockface, and not a computer?
