Finally finished my Gilbarco Sell-a-Vision restoration. The tape we came up with for the top turned out great. It’s not the exact replica of the ticker tape font the originals had but it shows crisp and clear and rotates just like the original would. A short movie clip of it running is displayed below. ...GB

WOW, it came out great. It is the perfect orange, not too yellow-orange or red-orange.

Thanks for all the compliments. The pump plate on the front is an original tin plate not a decal. This was originally a Lion pump and only had one door when I found it but that door still had the holes in it for one of the tin signs. Thought it was only fitting to restore it to its original glory....GB

This is how I found it:
