Hello all,
I am a new member and am enjoying this site!
I have a Bennett 810 visible pump that my uncle drug out of a barn 40 years ago. I would like to restore it as a Sinclair version since he worked for the company for many years.
Question: For this type of pump, do most folks use logo decals on the body skins? Or is it more authentic to use tin plates or signs formed to the curvature? Which Sinclair logo is period correct for this pump?
My pump skins had remnants of Shell/Ethyl logos (stencils or transfers(??)) and a 7"x 9" tin plate on each, too rusty to read (maybe "contains LEAD" plates?).
Any help you can offer would be appreciated. I want to order the decals or signage up front so that I can get a decent color match with the paint.
Does anyone have any pics of a Sinclair Bennett 810, as an example?
Thanks in advance for all the help.
