Had custom. Letters made up for me, Red Indian Station, Oil, and Gas. See picture under Indian Head. Started to rough assemble that made up station Lighter. The project is coming along nicely. To be continued with more pictures on another day. Thanks for following along, and keep checking in as I will add more pictures of it’s progress on this page.

First, thank you for all the kind words. This is a labor of love for me. I’m having a blast building this wall. Things are working in my favour on this project too. At this point I realized to make this look like a gas station, I would need another pump. I was very fortunate to come across a fellow petroliana member selling a rough rusty Wayne 866 close to North Bay, about 4.5 hour drive. Timing was perfect, so here is my new addition. I added Oil and Gas lettering on the wall now. This is not a true showcase 866, someone at sometime added the display opening on one side with hinged door, the other side has a steel panel. I’m still thrilled to have it and will work with it.

More pictures of the new addition. Sheet metal sides are pitted so bad in some areas, you can see right through. A few more Canadian winters outside and this pump might have been a parts pump. It’s a perfect candidate for rough restoring.

Now finally next to each other to see how they look with the Red Indian gas station wall. That central vac needs moved.

Now it’s time to build that island. Time to get these pumps of the ground.

Dry fitting the gas pumps on the new island. I’m using every inch of my garage back wall for island fit.
