This is my Bowser 575 from the mid 30's. I've included a "before" picture to show what a coat of paint, doors, a globe, signs, and lots of elbow grease can do for old junk. Your website was a BIG help in getting the pump dated and the doors I needed to finish the pump.

Looks really good Rod. I know you are proud. What did you use for ad glass?

I took out the spinner manifold, put in a piece of sandblasted or frosted glass and put a transluscent decal on the outside or smooth side. With a light bulb between the face and the ad glass it lights it up pretty well.
