For sale: White Halftrack and Scout Car gauge decals restock

Post by Big D » Mon Sep 14, 2015 2:05 pm

Hi all,

For all those who are restoring WW2 White Halftracks and Scoutcars, I have restocks of a set of decals to aid in the restoration of the speedometer, cluster gauges and for the halftrack, the tachometer gauge.

The speedometer set includes a clear faceplate decal and a set of odometer/trip meter number decals. As part of restoring these speedometers you will usually need to replace or repaint the faceplate and the odometer/trip meter numbers. This faceplate decal has been printed on a clear background and has been made using artwork from the original speedometer faceplate.

For preparation, you first need to clean the faceplate surface and then paint it the aluminium type colour of the original. The decal can then be applied directly onto the faceplate. Once applied you will just need to cut the slot in the decal for the odometer and trip meter, and make a small pin-hole in the centre for the speedometer pointer.

The set of odometer number decals are printed in black font and red font on a white background which can be applied to your trip/odometer. These have also been made using artwork from the original.

For preparation, you will need to clean off all the existing paint on the trip meter and odometer. Ensure the surface is clean and dry and then apply the number strips. You may need to trim a very small amount off the end of the strip to make the ends meet correctly. There is no need to paint the odometer drums as the background on these decals is white like the original.

The cluster gauge set includes decals for each of the gauges: fuel gauge, oil pressure gauge, temperature gauge, and ammeter. These decals have also been sized and produced to exactly match the four original gauges.

Many Halftrack and Scoutcar owners have working cluster gauges that just need the faceplate restored. This is a good low cost way to freshen up those working gauges. This is also a good option to allow you to use a gauge in your cluster that isn't original but can be adapted to work and look right with this correct decal applied.

These are a clear decal and in preparation for their application, you will need to clean up and paint the existing gauge faceplate to match the original aluminium colour. You can then apply these clear decals over the top of the painted surface and trim them to size. They are cut to the same shape as the originals but there will be some trimming required around the edges and in the opening where the gauge pointer is. I suggest you cut this opening in the decal where the pointer is before you remove the backing paper as the decal is sticky.

The decals for the White Halftrack Tachometer are matched to the same font and format of the original tachometer. Like the speedo faceplate decal, they are a clear decal. In preparation for its application you will need to paint the tachometer faceplate the aluminium colour of the original, and the same colour as the speedometer faceplate. Then you just apply the decal.

These decals are a good low cost alternative to painting. The result is a very professional looking finish.

Prices are:

* 1 x Speedometer set of decals which includes faceplate decal and odometer number set decals = $20 USD

* 1 x Cluster gauge set of decals which includes decals for the complete set of four gauges = $15 USD

* 1 x Tachometer faceplate decal = $10 USD

The prices include postage to anywhere in the world. Please PM me if interested in any.

Hi all,

If anyone is restoring their speedometer, tachometer or cluster gauges in their White Halftrack or Scout Car, I'm down to the last few sets left of these decals:

* Speedometer faceplate decal $10 USD (5 left)
* Odometer number decals set $10 USD (6 sets left)
* Cluster gauge decals set $15 USD (6 sets left)
* Tachometer faceplate decal $10 USD (halftrack only) (7 left)

All prices include postage to anywhere in the world. I'll also take $5 off the price for any combination of decals. That is, if you got a set of cluster gauge decals and a tachometer decal, it would be $20 instead of $25.

Feedback on them from buyers has been very good. I am not planning to get anymore printed at this stage, so please PM me if interested.

Thanks.

Hiya!

Got a request for a decal for the regular SW WW2 US army vehicle speedo, does anybody make 'em, or know where I can get hold of 'em? In Europe, preferably.

Hi all,

I have some halftrack/scout car speedo odometer decals here FREE anyone who might find them useful.

When they were printed, some of the ink bled so a lot of the numerals aren’t completely clear, as you can see from the photos.

The printer replaced them so they cost me nothing and if anyone thinks they might be of use to them, I’ll send them a few sets for the cost of the postage only ($2.60 USD to the US).

Looking at them, you may well be able to make up a couple of good rows of numbers if you pick out the best ones. There are 21 sets of odometer numbers available.

Please PM me if they are of use to you.

For sale: White Halftrack and Scout Car gauge decals

Post by Big D » Fri Jul 21, 2017 3:47 pm

Hi all,

After a request and some assistance from a member with an original temperature gauge (thanks JB), I have had some decals produced for the WW2 White Halftrack/Scoutcar temperature gauge, as per the attached picture.

You might recall I already have the complete cluster gauge set of decals for sale. The temperature gauge decal with that set though does have different colouring on the numbers and markings. At the time I had these produced, I had received various advice on whether the gauge I was working off was just a WW2 variant or perhaps a French or post-war production.

Regardless, this new temperature gauge decal is US WW2 and it is available now. As per the other decals, you will still need to prepare the gauge faceplate and paint it the silver aluminium colour before applying the decal.

The price is $5 USD including post to anywhere in the world.

I will be supplying the new temperature gauge decal with the complete cluster gauge set. Both versions of the temperature gauge decal will be supplied. These are $12 USD for the set.

I have restocks of the other decals:

• Speedometer faceplate and odometer numbers = $20 USD
• Tachometer faceplate = $10 USD

Please PM if interested.

Thanks.
