Jim I'm not sure why he decided to sell them to me! When I stopped in to talk to his son about doing some fabrication work, I noticed the gas pumps and asked him about them. He told me they needed to sell them or move them because they were tired of people asking about it. I guess I just caught him on a good day!

Here are a couple more pics of the wayne rainbow that I bought with it. It looks like the decals should clean up nicely on it. Could anyone lend any advice for cleaning up the Gardner logo? I've used paint stripper before but I'm wondering if anyone has used anything a little less abrasive. I sure don't want to mess this one up.

I assume the decal is plastic.
A lot of people here have had luck removing paint from plastic with brake fluid.
It might attack the glue though...not sure
good luck !

I'm with Kevin . Clean it up . Who else will have pump with that logo. One of a kind, I really like that decal . Just be sure to repost and share with us if you do clean it up. Very neat!

When Z first found the image Slama and T-way did some globe lenses and Buck did some signs using decals on powder coated metal.
I got a couple of 12" ones and a 24" and am very happy with them as I think it is one of the coolest images out there.

Here's a link to Buck's site:

Just click on "library".

I sent you a PM. You asked for pictures of the lenses and price. $150 No answer.

Sent another PM, no answer.

I guess you didn't want them very bad.

Thanks

Never heard back. PM'ed again no answer.
