Some thoughts on my decal job, going kind of correct police hear
After working on my pto, lower thread, I decided to try to tackle the decals I never got put on my 47 circle loader cub. I ordered a set of vinyl decals from maple hunter, and I would guess that they are a good item from what I have read. I have never put any on before so they looked good to me. I am using the tape hinge to get in place then sprits' with water method, and is working well. Till I found a problem with the decals
. Well I have an early original Circle cub that you can see most of the decals, and was comparing placement with it and the pictures in the book.
I started with the P.T.O. decal and it went on good
, so I thought this taint to bad to do. Did the light switch decal,
I did the BE CAREFULL one on the tank, NOTE. it is a little smaller than the original mine reads the same but is just a bit larger.
I did not put on the oil change one on as my original one appears to have the Pur-o-lator decal as in the early manual. I will order one.
I could not see the air cleaner decal on my original so I put the one on that was with the kit. Note. The one pictured in the manual looks a little different.
Well I lined up one of the side hood decals, got it wear I wanted it and put it one. Then I thought this don't look quite the same. So I went and looked at the original. Well, NUTS,
not the same. The ones I got Say IH McCormick Farmall made in U.S.A. International harvester Company . Chcago U.S.A. NOTE. the original as well as the manual pics. say, IH McCormick - Deering Farmall Made BY International harvester Company . Chcago U.S.A. Well had just done the one. It was still damp so I peeled it off and will order different ones.
Then got looking at the Circle CUB decals for the dog legs, The original and the pics in manual are a bit different than the ones in the sets, but as I cannot find any, any different I will probably use them. Not lots of difference but enough to be annoying. And if I was not comparing to the original I probably would be none the wiser.
Any way word of caution watch what set of decals you are ordering.
