Central Control Panel

The decals and stainless surround on my 1968 Globetrotter's Central Control Panel is in poor shape. The lettering is obscured. Does anyone know if they are reproduced or anyone can silkscreen or otherwise restore them?
Thanks, Gene

Walmart has a little (kind of expensive) machine called 'Crickcut'. Lots of sign shops and merchants use them now and they will precisly cut small decals out of any kind of paper. I bet one of those scrap booking hobby houses has one in use. The machine looks something like in between a printer and a fax machine. Look this up on you tube. There are silkscreen shops out there too that do T-shirts that have art departments where they can build you a screen ($$$$) I would do the Crickut myself. Correctly spelled - its call a 'QUICKKUTZ' you will see it on youtube.

Gene,
Mine is in the same shape, looks terrible. I am planning on making a new cover panel for mine out of aluminum. The other option I have thought about is sand it and paint it. I hate to loose the original look, but mine looks terrible. I have had a want ad in the classifieds for a long time trying to find a panel in better shape but have had zero luck. Love to hear what you decide to do.

These guys mainly do gauges but they are constantly duplicating gauge faces and should be able to help you. I've worked with them in the past with excellent results, though it has been years.
