We are doing a simple viso pump visible in Early early colors. Question is there is no picture that we have that would show if the access or recovery door was orange or Blue. We have done both and thought that the blue was too much and tried the orange. There are to tags or screws on either one so hard to tell which would accent better. The ad we have is for an different pump so it does not show. Too much blue would be maybe not as eye appealing. The cast iron colors are the same as in the photo though. Thoughts anyone ? Mike's decal.

I personally like the orange better.

But I think I would stripe the door to match the pump body . . .

I realize that is more work, but it'll make the door dissapear.

Agree with above. Since striping the door would be lot of work, definitely the orange if going solid.

Orange door. If you do not want to stripe the door maybe you could do just the flange on the door, that would make it look smaller.

I like Matt's idea of striping the flange if you don't want to stripe the entire door, but an orange door if you are going with only one color.

We also thought about Yellow pinstripe because of the all orange bottom and middle. Wish I had the ad here I could take a picture and show that there is some gold in it also along with the gold or bronzish outline of the decal. These suggestions are great and very helpful. I have changed colors many a time because just could not figure it out on other pumps. That is why I ask. Thanks
