    Have you been able to locate original decals or leaving them off?

    I have a friend who has a restored Minnie so I sent him the link to this thread as something he can aspire to.

    Thanks. Competition is not in the plans at all. Definitely some "nostalgia" hooks, but that's as far as it goes.

    Just doing this in memory of Bill Newlon, and his legacy.




    Thanks Laine. Work didn't cooperate today!! I didn't get the parts we needed, so I'll have to try again, but tomorrow doesn't look too promising either.





    We have the decals, emblems, and misc. associated parts, for the finishing touches.
