I decided to work on my Bolens 1054 I got i while back. I degreased and sandblasted it to bare metal, I put 2 coats of self etching primer and 3 coats of single stage urethane paint. I plan on putting my Wisconsin TRA 12D in as it did not come with a engine. I know theirs been a lot of discussion on where to get decals but i was wondering if they may have improved or not? I know Maple Hunter are cheap price wise but is it worth spending the extra $$ for the other ones. Here's where I'm at !!!

That sure looks nice. As far as decals I've used both Sams and Maple Hunter. Maple Hunter is a whole lot cheaper in price and their quality is very nice. They are not as heavy duty and nice as Sams but are a good 2nd. I have been using Maple Hunter on all my projects. If you want any pics let me know. Keep up the nice work.

Looks good

Maple hunter's decals are not made of as good a quality as Sam or Click it and stick it, there's also been numerous errors in maple hunter decals
