Today I finished a G&B visible. This pump was a Imperial Oil pump since day one. It came from the same family who had owned a small garage in Leney, Saskatchewan since the late 1920’s. I based the colour scheme off the four sided Marvelube oil bottle rack some of you may be familiar with.

By the way I really like that color scheme. Are you sure of the colors though, as far as the lightness of the body ? Been thinking of doing of my doubles with the picture I have of the double on the large map. Just was not sure of the shade of that green.

Hey Craig, the colour wasn’t made to match off of a original oil rack. I used a powder coat colour made by Tiger Drylac called “aged copper” which is a semi matte to get me close. Best bet for exact match would be to use paint and use a original panel off one of the oil bottle racks to match.
