Hello all,
I have restored a couple of pumps and decided I would like a display cabinet for some valuable models of ole cars.
There are fiberglass replicas out there but they run upwards of $2500 and that is not in my budget. So I decided to visit a guy that lives near by who has many pumps. I picked up this pump for a resonable price.
All the parts that were not used were sold to restorer's, so nothing was thrown away.
I made new front and back doors, otherwise it's all original steel.
Here's a before and after picture.

Cheers!
Mickm

Where can I get that stainless/aluminum trim that goes on the front & rear near between the front panel & the top?

Thanks for the kind words guys.
rogerpete- I reused the original trim. I spent a great deal of time soda blasting and polishing. I also machined 14 securing screws. If I had know they were available, I would have been on the phone. Great price too!
In short, I spent a great deal of time I didn't need to.

This is what mine looked like before and after.
Cheers!
Mickm
