Some of you might recall when I first bought this pump a couple of years back. It has been an interesting and at times quite challenging restoration in many ways. Now that it is 99% completed on Canada Day, July 1, I thought I would share it with you. The colour scheme is a little different with the doors being two colours just so that all the steps or breaks on the pump would match. The globe and front and rear ad glass are originals. I couldn't have done it without the help of Ron Scobie, Lance (Pogogas) and the wisdom of DB. My many thanks to them and to minuteman for talking me into it. Cheers, Don.

Don, that is a gorgeous restoration. You should be very proud. The Art Deco lines on the Tokheim make it one of my personal favorites. Great job!
