It is about time! Someone has a Tokheim 300 that is like my model. The only difference is mine has white doors!

Most of the t300's that I have seen do not have the ad glass in the lower part of the doors...

Very cool! And what a GREAT job!

Lance, I'm not sure... When I got it and saw that silver on there, I got to thinking it would look awesome done in Sky-Chief. And I got to looking at some Sky-Chief pumps and im kinda leaning towards Sky- Chief. But Gilmore is still in the near future.

I rember a running into a pump station on the colorado/kansas border about 5 years ago that had "2" tall boy 39's.

QUESTION - they were texico - and the sky chief had black sides and silver doors. But was it originally a matalic silver or just a plain silver?

Ethan:

Paint code for Texaco Silver - PPG 2518.

The Gulf pump looks fantastic! Keep up the great work.

Ethan , I've seen the sky chief done in silver , silver and black , greenish like on the pump plate , and like larry did his green and red , it all depended on the station owner as to what colors he might of had , I think the double colors look great ,

This is my Tokheim 300 - it was originally made to be a phillps pump - but I change the globes and stikers every 3 months...

Next to it on the wall is my restored condom machine, and then on the other side it my slot machine.

These are in my front entry way to my house.

Thanks for all the comments guys, I'll probably just do it all silver cause that's the way I've seen the most of them done.

Travis, You mentioned that you change decals and globes every couple of months. When you change the decals have you ever had a chunk of paint come off the pump?

Do you magnetize the back of the decals?

Never had a painted pump - all are powder coated....

This new tokheim 39 will be painted, and I will start going to sign shops and getting big car sign magnets to put the new stickers on. Then switch them with magnets.

One member of this board said to glue screw heads into the corners of the magnet signs and then they will look like bolt on signs...


Thanks,
