I tried an old look paint job on this red Gilbarco. I did not care for the look it had and wanted to make it look better but try and make it look unrestored. what do you think?

I love it!! I was just tonight thinking of doing something like that myself. The only problem with it is that stainless looks to new, you might need to remove say...two pieces and toss it my way! HeHe

I'm not a pump guy, but that's very impressive Matt. Looks like you got exactly what you were after.
