Hi all - After posting in the forum seemingly ages ago now everyone spoke very highly and recommended I get the decal set for Rex'48 from C & G. I emailed them twice because I could not find the decals on the website and now today I called them. After being asking to call I different store I just didn't get a warm and fuzzy feeling. It seemed like I was asking for something odd. In the end he took my number and said he'd get back to me with a price and lead time estimated at 7-10 days.

I just don't have the confidence that what they are going to send is going to be the right decal set for my serial #. Anyone have a different experience with C&G?

Since some time last year they are no longer a Case IH dealer. You may do well to go elsewhere.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I have had good luck with Maple-Hunter Decals. No web site, call 812-894-9759.

TM Tractor also has a good selection of decals along with sizes and placement photos.

Used Maple-Hunter Indiana ( http://www.maplehunterdecalsindiana.com/ ) the last 2 or 3 sets of decals I've ordered. Always arrived good and fast. Very helpful. I'm particularly fond of the vinyl die-cut variety. :cool:

Buy the vinyl ones, the mylar you will be unhappy with in a couple years

I have heard tell that my hero 'Bermuda Ken' Updike has gone to another dealer.... he really is a super parts guy and author of 'Cubs and Cub Cadets'. Hopefully he will pipe in one day. I will say that C&G was always my favorite dealer, but since they ain't a dealer anymore all bets are off.

For 'square nose' Cubs a dealer or TM is your best option. I can't say much about the Farmall Cubs decals
