Heya to all in OldGas land!
You called it, it's a original Chevron Supreme pump and it has a Oregon metal tag and possibly California decals?!???
I got back to this late last nite after putting the kids to bed. Seems like thats the only time of the day that I can get stuff done since my youngest is now home schooled by me.
I ended up using a metal putty knife and I tried a plastic knife but no luck at all with that and other plastic objects. On this job, it needs a metal blade with a solid edge to scrape up the 3 or 4 layers of hardened paint.
Parts of the paint has adhered better to the decal and it's above the important parts so I have just had to slow down and go into "pick it" mode but there is some unavoidable damage and I should've started on the other door since it is not the display side. I still have a little left to get to on this side and then I'll flip it around and start on the other side.
All of the decals have decal #s and the supreme sticker has a 7-62 on it, along with the Dec #, that, I think, dates the decal. There are 2-4 more decals under the top one, some parts that are very close and other parts that have different colors. I believe this decal has the graphics on top of it so a paint stripper probably would've ruined it and there are a few spots that I scraped it off down to a black backer.
Next round, I'm wearing a bandana on my face, freekin flecks of paint go everywhere!
Thanx for everyones input!!!!!!!
