Well if I hadn't already had a VERY rusty Jacobs 26 machine, I would have never thought of it either. I would have done it up as a Vintage gas pump clone. The shape of it would have lended itself real well to that too.
Thanx!

I have a more current picture of one of the first aid cabinets and a Sunoco station trash can clone.

Darn, Darn, Darn! Dadgumyou! Now I am feeling like I need to pull down my repurposed metal office cabinet and apply a little new paint and deorations. And I was just starting to catch up on some projects! Seriously, Very Nice Job! Keep the pictures and inspiration coming.

Some people can turn everything they touch into art. Me, I'm lucky not to break stuff that I try to refinish.

I love your work!

Customcab,

Love what you have done... I just need to see a whole shot of the garage.

And where did you get the coke decals?

I found a vendor on ePay that had them pretty reasonable (Oldgaspump.com). There's a whole aftermarket out there for people restoring old pop vending machines and gas pumps. They're about as crazy as us car guys! You name the machine...and somebody makes decals, labels, manuals, and some parts for it.
