I’d rather spend my $100 on a completely different petro item than support these idiots who are making fakes and ruining some of the fun in this hobby.
In fact I’d rather spend $100 on an a real item valued at $50, than spend than spend $10 on a fake item ‘valued’ at $200.
Just my 2 cents. But I wouldn’t even buy that if you think it’s a good deal. Like the other fellas said - save your hard earn money for the real deal. You will be much happier, more satisfied, and proud of your purchase in the end.
If you're going to go for a globe top, then finding an original Marine White globe would be the most expensive "part" you will need to complete it, lol! Nice pump though, love the original state of this one. Darin
Morgan and others. Please don't take this as criticism. .
I have been a salesman all my life, I think I know how to sell items where I can make the most money. If this top had been mine, I would have taken it to my sandblaster and had it blasted. The cost would have been between $20.00 & $30.00, even cheaper if I had included a number of other pieces I needed blasted at the same time.. If I had a nice warm location to keep it, I would have left it the way it was, if I had to place it in a moist place I would have used a spray can of primer and given it a light coat. Then I would have asked $175.00 to $200.00 for the top.
Many people are resultant to purchase rusted items, spend a little money then ask a little more for your effort.
