Nice job. Very nice.

Actually Gil was her 1st choice, but my supervisor at wok is named GIL and she was afraid I wouldn't know who she was talking about!

That is one awesome restore job. Would you you say where you ended up getting your decals along with the sleeves and control handles?

That is one awesome restore job. Would you you say where you ended up getting your decals along with the sleeves and control handles?

The decals were made by a graphic print shop using measurements and photos that my wife worked up. Bee Hive Printing in Boonville Indiana. They have all the decals for the Gilson S-14 H on file now. Tried to get a "good deal" if we spread the word on who made them.

The control knobs were purchased from a company called CARR LANE MANUFACTURING (carrlane.com).

If you are calling the motion control lever black plastic cover the sleeve, it came from Glen Pettit (Wheel Horse snow plow direction control lever). GlenPettit@WheelHorseForum.com
Glen Pettit * 1541 N. Michigan Road * Eaton Rapids, MI 48827-9225

If you want GILSON decals and want more info on them, PM me.
