You can also check out some of the SimpletrACtor sponsors here: http://www.simpletractors.com/Main/links.htm Personally, I have used Wells Implement and Sandy Lake Imp. Wells Implement has a nice selection of Decals. Note: Sorry Wells Imp doesn't have simplicity decals only AC (Although you could alway's turn your simplicity into an AC!!:D).

PAINT: The good news is.... OEM paint may still be available from your Simplicity dealer. The better news is.... No one seems to know what the exact shade and hue looks like. If you're going to do a complete repaint, any paint store to mix a very, very close match. DECALS: Again, these may still be available from your Simplicity dealer. If not, and you want an exact replacement for OEM, go to your local sign shop. Initial design may cost anywhere from $100 on up. Die cut layer vinyl is the cheapest to produce, but it's not like OEM. OEM was silk screen, and that will probably cost $50 on up for the first decal. The good news is, after the design is made and the first decal is produced, other decals can be made for pennies in the same run. Have extras made and sell them to offset your costs. Take a look in the Gallery > http://www.simpletractors.com/gallery/simplicity.htm Some of those restorations are beautiful. Are they the "Right" color? Who knows?

MY TWO CENTS:FIRST: Welcome to the club, John! SECOND: I am currently re-painting a 67 2010. For paint I found Allis-Chalmers orange at my local Ace Hardware is almost a perfect match. As far as decals, mine were all in good shape so I just taped them up and painted around them. Depends on what you want; I'm not a real "perfectionist" and I work mine. Good luck!
