Default Another Old gas pump finally done

Took me forever to finish this one around 80 hours. It was in really bad shape both the doors were missing. Had to make two new doors which was time-consuming. Lot of pitting in the metal so that took a little more time than usual to fix.All he has to do now is put the correct add glass in the door. The the fella i done it for was pleased with it that's all that matters.The last picture of the red one is a another one he wants me to do. Has some big dents in it but that's not really an issue to fix. At least I don't have to make anything for this one.

VERY nice restore bergie !!!!

…….it's hard to see the "price per gallon" clearly but it looks like it's in the teens ! (wonder how long since it was last used )

mighty fine work there bergie! I sure look forward to seeing what you've been working on!

The title to your post was a little misleading:
"Another Old Gas Pump finally done"...I though it was the death announcement for a Politician!

Looked like a Chevy at 1st, but the more I looked at it, the more it looked like a Stude. If it looks like your finished gas pumps when it's finished, it'll be a nice truck
