1958 Bennett 2066 Sinclair Gas Pump

I restored a Gibarco "Sales Maker" Texaco pump and parked it in front of the shop a few years ago. The weather was starting to take it's toll on it so when I found this gas pump for sale I decided to save my Gilbarco pump by performing a basic restoration for this Bennett gas pump. The pump was pretty beat and it was missing one of the bottom panels as well as the glass panels on one side. I started by fabricating the missing panel and using a piece of polycarbonate plastic for the missing glass. Next, I scuffed all the paint and brushed on some fresh green and white paint. I scuffed the new paint, added some "patina" and added the new graphics. I used LED lighting, added a reproduction globe and she's now ready to greet everyone who stops by the shop.
