I have been working on the Gasoline collection for a while now. Started out with plugs, then started to refinish plugs that I couldn't get in gas, then, started doing custom Penns over in Gas, some have been milled, drilled, or both, and none at all. There are various configurations of parts on these reels. Van Staal reel knobs, custom aluminum drag knobs, Clear side plates, Zee bass reel knobs, Oem painted drag knobs, one badge on the 710 was installed upside down, as the reel was displayed while standing up, easier to read. A couple have no badges, or decals, just Gas colors. On the 722, I used a greenie rotor, no decals, mix matched spools. I have modified the gold drag knob to fit the 700, 704, 706.  There are 5 colors that make up the gas color, black, green, blue, gold, and purple. A couple of the Penns have individual parts painted one solid color, not blended.  A lot of the Penns have parts that are interchangeable. Penn also has their own black and gold color that does not need to be painted on the reel, like the spool, (gold), and various black pieces. The gas paint really looks good on the Penns. A lot of different combinations for sure on these reels. They all function perfect and are displayed. They were all sandblasted, painted with Testors model paint, and were put into an oven briefly between each coat of paint to bake on, which is where the shine comes from. No clear was put on any of the reels or lures I refinished.  There is a dozen or more plugs that I have refinished. All display well. I am missing a few gas plugs from a few different builders. I currently have 190 pieces total.  Let's see what you have for Gas plugs.

Even though I seen most of these pictures in the past. It still blows me away.
Pretty sure your crossed the line from passion to obsession a loooooong time ago. Lol 

I wasn’t joking before when I asking how I go about getting a ticket into this museum. Is the price of admission one gas plug? Lol

Great collection 7 Rivers

Thanks SB, yes, bobby's work is unreal. The thing with the gas is, it's never the same pattern. Hoping some others will post their gas plugs as well. There are some I don't have for sure...
