A while back I had an idea to do a globe that looked like the cans and they finally got done. Here is the first lenses I had and then the new ones.









I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]

I'll second that. There was some back and forth when Jim ran the tire lenses that they were used on building side and not on pumps.
