Thanks for the help that explains why the other side of the sign only has 100 so they must flip the sign when it is only 100 avgas. He did say he got the pump from a airport.

Well I am thinking about it would you restore it or leave as is? I know it is my pump but if you had it what would you do the only reason I ask is it was green originally.

...um, have you looked to see if it's green porcelain underneath the red paint?...even if it isn't, I'd remove the pump signs...they're not particularly interesting, and not original to the pump...

Very nice National Scott. Looks excellent. Yes, I would remove that 100/130 sign also.
