The latest project - Wayne 89a Visible Gas Pump
« on: July 08, 2015, 08:44:49 AM »
Thought I'd share  ;D

    I’ve wanted a visible gas pump for a few years now and had pretty much consigned myself that I’d have to drive to the Midwest to find a restoration candidate then low and behold one day I’m surfing Craigslist and there’s one in Simi only a couple of miles from home.  I couldn’t get there fast enough!  The big deal on these things is to find one that has all the parts AND the glass canister is not broken, BB holed, cracked etc…   This one was completely intact except that it somehow had water in it for a very long time (I drove like a little old lady all the way home terrified that after surviving all those years I’d break it during the few miles I had to go to get it home).  You could barely see through the glass.  In the pictures you’ll see the glass cleaned up beautifully with just scraping a razor blade along it.  The other major issue was that the door where the nozzle would hang had been broken.  I bought a reproduction door but it was far less ornate than the original so I decided to fix the original.  It’s cast steel so I wasn’t sure how it was going to take to welding but it wasn’t really all that bad.  I don’t know if I’d trust my life to the weld but for this is was more than good enough.  Other than those two obstacles it was just a lot of time in the sandblaster and straightening the skins with bodywork (I hate bodywork or at least the sanding part!).  It had a Mohawk Gasoline logo hidden under all those layers of paint so that’s what I put back on it.  I wanted a logo that was old or extinct and that one fit the bill  ;D






























There's a build thread here with more pictures.  Something here at work is making the "Mass upload" picture thingy not work here on DTS???  I have lot's more pictures it's just too painful loading them one at a time.

Very nice!!!!!!!!! If the glass had not cleaned up,muriatic acid will remove all water deposits.Looks like it cleaned up very well. Great work on the door repair!!!!

Stiller work as usual Lance.  You can turn pooo to gold.  I deal with and oil company here in the Wichita area that has a but load of the old Sinclair pumps restored and standing in there main floor area.  Really nice to see old stuff like that saved.

Very cool.  No doubt had the glass broken you would have made a new one. 



Why you keep it under wraps for so long? 

Seriously, quit the day job.  At least take work on consignment and over charge.  Them monkeys in Vegas make a pretty good lick restoring stuff.

Making glass might have been a bit beyond my skill level!

"Them monkeys in Vegas"  That's funny.  Obviously I have watched their show.  So I have to learn to like the color green cause that's the only color he paints anything!   Can I get a trophy wife too like Mrs. Dale  ;D

Why didn't I share sooner?  I don't know.  It's a buggy site.  I'll have to try to be more OPEN with my life and you guys from now on.  HAHAHAHAHA

Those monkeys in Vegas are hacks! A small town 15 miles east of me had a hanging neon/porcelain sign sent to them for restoration. Cost $25K and it had to be redone after getting it back-for less money. The thing was very,very shoddily done. A complete rip off. The person in charge of the project swallowed the TV hype hook,line and sinker. Lance,your work would put them out of business. I guarantee it!

We would all love the ETHYL additive.  Just don't get it on your skin.  I guess they figured out as time when by it killed you.  All the good stuff is bad for you  eyes

Grasshopper you have much to learn.  Trophy wives are too expensive.

Oh, word of warning.  Don't let the wife find out!   Well, unless she is into that sort of thing.
