My father just finished a few patina items today, a survivor Neptune pump and an old cig machine. The pump was cleaned, rewired, Sinclair painted on the doors, glass added, and cleared. The cig machine was done similar, cleaned, cleared, but also a galvanized internal liquor cabinet was added. Both I would consider "survivor" items, didnt need a full rust-o-ration.
Both are going into a clients work shop display of an old timey gas station. (sorry the pictures are a little washed out.)
