I have a hard time putting a worn dash plate on a freshly restored Cadet 124 . It appears that the aftermarket decal set includes a dash decal but would require eliminating the aluminum dash plate that is original to the Cub . Has anyone tried to restore one of these ? They appear to have been silkscreened . The turquoise color is almost completely gone except for what was under the rubber steering grommet and the four hold-down screws . I've included pictures of the dash plate I have as a starting point . I'll be visiting my local silkscreener ( same one that did my Kohler engine plates ) to get his input . If I can afford to have it done, then what kind of protective clear finish can I add to protect my investment . And, by the way, all my tractors get used . No garage queens in my barn !
Thanks to all of you who have helped in my previous endeavors ; learning the restoration process .
