This is my first gas pump restoration. I removed all the guts pump and motor etc. All the panels where taken down to bare metal and painted at my friends shop. I am almost done as far as the outside I am waiting on the hose and nozzle. As far as the inside I have to get a motor to drive the vedeer root. The light is working and I have it plumbed to circulate fluid through the manifold. The hose guards and door spears are reproduction as well as the door glass gaskets. For the door edge gasket I used a automotive gasket by King Frost. I did not like the look of the reproduction door edge gasket. I have asked some questions on the forum and appreciate the answers/help. Thanks here are some pictures

Nice job. It looks good. Contact KWFrith on here. He sells a motor kit to turn the Veeder root. I bought one from him a few years back. What brand of gas is it going to be? Post some more pics when complete.

Just my opinion, but if u put the “8ball” faceplates on your 80 they look much better. Chris
