Been pecking away on the pump now I'm waiting for the large pieces of glass and some tweaks and then into the great room, job one "don't break the glass! I did get some reproduction Firestone lens and now I need some opinions. I initially was going with the Gulf globe that was on the pump when I found it but now I'm not sure which way to go. Gulf or the Firestone?

What do you think guys?

I like the look of the Gulf globe. The blue on the Firestone globe seems too bright/light when compared to the signs. Maybe painting the body a dark blue might help.

The blue looks light because he might have too bright of a bulb in it. Here is a link when I posted mine. http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=677054 There is a picture lit and unlit. The blue is not light.

Thank you everyone. Matt I have a 40 watt bulb in it and the blue is still a little light but I'm going to go lower wattage. I like the repop with the low profile body but I like it being the way I found the pump and Gulf globe on the pump. I'll rotate the globes and enjoy them both. My wife " flight control" likes the Gulf.

I like the firestone too. Maybe try a 7watt incandescent bulb?Maybe even a small amber bulb. Pump is really great....

I thought I would finish my thread on the 50 rust-o-ation with the pump in the great room and share it with everyone. The plan was to have it in by May but projects on the house and property pushed it back. As always it took a lot longer to get her in, 2 1/2 days of moving stuff around to fit it in but it's finally home as of yesterday. I would also like to give a big shout out to Matt Alvarez and John Kramer for the advise and help finding a couple of key pieces.
