I am looking at having new decals made for my 990, and I have a friend who can make them, but I need hires photos of each of the decals, so I can get them made.

If they turn out well I will let you know what the cost would be if anyone wants their own

I will also try to get the make, model, and serial number decals reproduced as well.

Thanks
Doug Morency

I will shoot you a set of high resolution pics and measurements ASAP. I have the bad *** Farm King decals that deserve to be on every MTD. For me, tonight, ASAP is a little ways off. However, I will have them posted. Later, Jimmy.

Doug, what software does your printer friend use? I do a lot of business with our local sign shop and I might be able to convince the blonde overthere to come out and do a layout for me. My daughter got a nasty flu last night and I didn't make it out to the garage. Hopefully I can shoot them this afternoon.

I think he uses corel draw or adobe issustrator and then to a sign cutter software.

I find it a shame that MTD does not stock the decals or any photos of them, when I called yesterday, they just about spit out their coffee, when I told them I had a 73 mtd 990 :)

I would like to create a catalog of each of the variants of the 990's, with pictures and mesurements, and files to print your own decals, and not to make money off of them, kinda helping others to help myself if you know what I mean.

I believe that guy got those set up from one of our friends here on MTF. maybe Chargin.
And by the way I would love to have a set of the Farm king 16 decals if they are not too expensive.

It looks as though Jim has supplied some great shots of the hood top decal, with measurements. Do you still want one of mine, which is the same as Jim's, the tractors are the same.

From the Pictures Jim provided:thanku: , I have started to make the decals in Inkscape in SVG format

These are just done quickly and will needed to be printed and compared to see if they need more work.

Welcome to the forum T-Shirt. Just to let you know, this is a very old post (2009) and you may not get a response from Doug about this.

Cityboy has you pointed in a good direction.
