I was getting sick of looking at my Tokheim 850 with different colored original bezels and a broken up visi. So I decided to call up Ron Scobie and make an order from both new glasses for the visi, a reset crank, and a couple ID tags to finish out the pump. I used some wood stain and some frosted glass spray paint to give me the older used look of an original visi and I think it came out great! Then I had some paint matched where I wotk to match the old red paint and its almost spot on. Just sharing the completed project. I really like this pump now. Enjoy.

Looks great. You did an awesome job on the new visi glass, it looks old and used.

Nice job! I love the "as found - original survivor" look.

Thanks everyone! I soaked up a rag with stain and wiped it on the inside of the glass, then I let it dry to a tacky feel and smeared it all over just to rough it up a bit.
