I sprayed the areas that will be too tough to get with a roller or brush.

The cut-in is done. I ended up just spraying the inside of the top as the paint was covering really well. It's just the inside, no one will ever really see it.

The biggest problem with Rust-Oleum is that it takes forever to dry.

The nozzle boot got super rusty. I took it apart and cleaned and painted all those parts. I absolutely hate this part of any restoration. Cleaning all these little fiddly bits. I usually do that first so they are done later. It feels good to know I can just grab all the done parts during reassembly and know I don't have to stop to wait for paint dry.

Well the big moment is finally here! The brand reveal! I got a shipment of repo parts from that website where good gas pumps go when they die. Anyway, here it is. I was going to make it Texaco, but then reconcidered. Texaco is great, but Wayne 505s look best two toned. With a limited color palette in Rust-Oleum, I chose red and white. What's red and white? Mobil Special.

Ok, so knowing the pump will be mobil special, I need to make a decision: upper valances white or red? Original is white, but I don't know what I like best.

The wiring is done. One less little task to do.

I have rolled the inside of the sides. They will get two coats on the inside. I will have to wait until tomorrow to paint it again.

Square peg in a round hole? I noticed that your ad glass has 90 degree corners. Your upper ad glass panel appears to have curved corners. Let me know how that works out. I have a 505 that needs an ad glass replaced so I'd like to know what I'm in for. Do they have rounded corners for 505's. Thanks, Bob

Yeah, I thought that too, but that is what the parts website listed for this pump. I have never seen an original ad glass or the rubber that holds it it. I'll let you know how it works out.

Two coats on the inside of the red parts. That's all they'll get. Doesn't look the best, but it's the inside. I for sure have to thin the paint. It is way too thick, picks up a heavy orange texture and looses gloss. Of course I will cut and buff on the outside, but still the paint is way too thick and heavy.

Mike, keep me posted when you install the ad glass. Thanks, Bob

The real experiment begins. I tried thinning the paint. I think I thinned it a bit too much. This is the first coat. It looks rough, but I'm sure it will look better after a few coats. The plan is to build up the coats then sand out the orange peel, and polish the paint. There are a few things that could go wrong here. The paint may not dry, may not sand, or may not polish. This is the heart of the experiment.
