Made a vintage gas pump to go with the models, and spent a few days adding LED lighting to my cabinets. The pump is cherry and used acrylic tube for the globe. Stole one of the cats toys for the hose (hair tie). Finally bit the bullet and added LED lights to my display cabinets. Found some “Bookcase” LED lights on amazon with 4 light bars that just plug in. Had to drill a few holes for wiring but love the result. Added a shield in front of the light bars.

Now I understand why the fuel is priced so high right now.
Well done, very nice pump.

Nice pump. I remember those. Pump a gallon into the top and let it drain into the tank ;))
