Great video, again. If I had done that to that pump I would have left one side as is so that everyone could see the before and after. Great job. Thanks for posting it. Bob

Thanks for all the nice compliments on my pump and video project! I really did enjoy that project more than any other that I have recently worked on.

Great job Rob! You've inspired me to try that on a Tokheim 850 I have with ugly brown paint over red an yellow peaking thru. Now I just need to find the time.
