They'll look very much like the new Weller (?) wheels but with hubcaps that actually fit!!! :D

Thanks for them, David. Great images. I'll have a go at getting the creases and scratches off of them sometime next week. :D


Update...

The labels were too tarnished to be able to just manipulate the Jpeg file and erase the damage but I did manage to find a Morris font download that almost matched the original. Hope to have some stuff printed in the next few weeks.

Are there any other labels? Wasn't there one showing how to drain the radiator??? Is there a good Jpeg file of the label that went on the side of the regulator box? :D

Would people be interested in having some of these labels if they were about £6 each plus p&p? I'm not sure if there would be enough interest in getting professional printing done on them. I can get a local company to make both of the labels up so there are almost indistinguishable from the original but they have minimum order quantities.

What models / years were they on ? I have reproduced the regulator label from Stevie's Photo, printed, pasted onto thin cards and covered in clear plastic, it looks great. It needs fiddling and bending to get into the regulator retaining wire giving it an authentic look. I would be happy to contribute to cost of any labels which fit period of my 1957.

I know they were fitted to Series MM but I don't know when they ended.

A bit too big so I'll shrink it down a touch.

Rob,

I scaled it from a drawing in the owner's handbook against the regulator size to get something that looked good. I am still interested in the bonnet release label as I know they were originally on my 1957. Let me know how much you are asking and I will have a couple to keep in reserve.

NB NMP plate cleaned up a treat. Resin arriving any day!

OK. I've just finished 13 days straight on the 747 simulator so am a little behind with tasks. I'll try to get onto the printing next week. :D


Does anyone know of a waterprrofing product that won't discolour card???

Rob, no problem, and the latest iteration of the reg label looks good! Pity mine is not in focus!
