Dwaine, I guess this is the only Tokheim 870 that is going to show up here. Well we do have Jan. still to post these so maybe they will start showing up after the first of the year. Great job on the pump!!!

Great 870s guys!! I like your pump of the month idea. I think we should pick a more common pump sometime and we might get even more responses. This is fun!!! Gas pump Rob

Thanks for the kind words folks.

Funny the Tokheim logo decal doesn't show up in the one photo. All the decals On the Polly pump are water transfer under a couple of clear coats. The pin stripe is paint, not tape. Two clear coats really made it smooth. Can't feel the lines at all. The Phillips pump has painted stripes but at the time, water transfer decals were not available so had to use vinyl.

I'm probably most proud of that Polly pump paint job than most of the others I've done. However, I do think there is a SeaSide pump in my future so that could change.

Thanks again everyone.

Thanks, Dwaine, for the complement.

The pump is actually my business partners. He's only casually into petro stuff, but I think did an outstanding job with this 870A.

So far, the only 870A (designating the beltway/ledge) posted so far. Recreating four skins rather than two was abit more involved but worth it IMHO.

Brian

PS: Thanks, Jim, for hosting the picture.

OK Guys, enough is enough. I'm getting so jealous I may kick my dog. LOL I don't see any pumps restored in Pennzoil and I really like it. Super jobs by everyone here. Lots of talent out there.
