I have them drawn in autocadd but i havent printed them out yet. All is going to be black. I attached a photo of the red ones hood sticker for ref. I found an old 50's sale brochure that i am going to follow that design which was slightly different. Also i saw one for sale in original paint (interesting that is the next serial# up from the red one) it had the same hood decal but the side hood script was all red and no decals on the floor sides (mark 1 in a box). There is shift pattern decal too.
Also watch your motor mounts brackets. The one i got from you was welded and my red one was welded in the same spot. The engine really bounces around i put bigger bushings in the first one which helped. Let me know i will have the guy print another set if you want when i get them.

Looking forward to seeing the decals on your restoration.

 

I'd like to know more about the issues with the motor mount brackets.  I have a couple 6hp moto-mowers that are roughly the same and would like to know if there's something I should be looking out for.

I plan on using solid metal bushings and not rubber to keep the engine from bouncing around. A little vibration is ok with me.

Jableman, you didn't have the decal printed on a chrome back round?

No i was going to do it separate. You can get adhesive foil that works thats pretty decent. I tried looking for the original style ribbed foil but no luck i am sure its available somewhere?. Did you keep the throttle on the hood? That area had the same chrome on it too. I filled that in and painted it white and moved it on to the side panel. What shade of green did you use? I went with emerald. Still deciding how to do the other one. Might go with the moto mower metallic blue instead of green just keep them different.

My throttle was already on the frame cover. I have not decided what I am doing with the rear of the hood, but I guess I should figure it out soon.
