416 Decals I Made Yesterday

Recommended Posts

Here are a set of hood decals I made yesterday for my Allis 416 tractor. I varied a bit from original to make them a tad easier to put together. These are overlayed type, not printed. Could only afford a cutter...those printers are several thousand dollars! They aren't perfect, but I am very happy with them. Hope to get on tractor tonight or tomorrow. I had to put the different colors down by hand which isn't easy to do but it came out ok. The top pic has reflections from kitchen light but the bottom ones shows good.

Time is the biggest factor for me. Dairy farming keeps me quite busy most of the time. Took somewhere around 12 hours or more to make the pattern in my software program just to do these decals. Good thing is once patterned, ya never have to do it again. If I had a clear pic of a 300 series decal I could pretty easily use my 416 pattern & make the 300 series from it.

Well, these days I have to wear reading glasses to do the close-up stuff! So I don't have the "eyes" I used to! sm06 Took over 12 hours on computer just to build the design as I didn't have a good enough picture to build from. Had to build all lines from scratch. But as I said, if you had the decals under your eyes, you'd see some flaws, not bad though. I thank all of you for the compliments. sm01

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
