I was thinking of buying three 16" metal stars to put on my shop from
American Stars.
I went ahead and made some cardboard cutouts and spray painted them red and hung them with duct tape to see how I would like them before I bought the real ones.
I would paint the metal ones with the same Texaco Red that I am going to do the gas pump with.
What do y'all think? I like the look.
I also want to get black letters to say "MARFAK LUBRICATION" over the left bay and "WASHING" over the right bay. This is what was on the Texaco stations of the 50's era.
I also put the globe on the pump for a trial fit. This pic also shows my new lights well:.

The following pics are to explain better the layout of my driveway and buildings. Things look a little dreary as it was cloudy today and the trees and grass haven't come out yet. We are in a pretty good drought right now too.
