How are you detail oriented enthusiasts replicating the Bolens Model # and Serial # decals?


I'm planning the restoration of an 18423-01 Mower Deck.  I purchased and received a set of decals from Sams and am really impressed with the quality. Not just the accuracy, but the weight of the materials themselves.  


Prior to purchase, I asked them if they could print my model and serial #s on them - it's not a service they provide.


Has anyone identified a way to do this that provides an authentic look?


My deck won't end up being show quality as I won't have the patience to deal with the rust pitting left after media blasting.  I also want to cut grass with it.


Still, I'd like to transfer the information for history sake.

I was wondering the same thing...   My 2 decks and sno-caster ..   None of them have the chrome tags with the model and serial numbers on them...


 I had thought of using a brass plate to at least put a model # on it...My memory isn't as good as it used to be and my books aren't always at hand...
