Useing transfers

Hello

I have just finished restoring my Ransomes Mercury which looks great. However I am unsure how to apply the transfers to the box and chain cover. Any help/tips are much appreciated. Can't wait to use it in the summer.

Many thanks James (The Lawn Ranger).

Hi James nice machine you have got there. I'm very new to this club myself but I might be able to help I would think its very much like putting transfers on model planes cut round your transfer put in a bowl of warm water wait a few seconds and the transfer will start to "lift" from its backing wet your grass box with water and slide it on. I must say getting any help on here is hard I have been trying to find out about my mk13 ransomes 16" cut and only one person has replied!! So I hope I have helped let me know how you get on and I hope to be seeing a picture of your completed machine. Bob

Useing transfers

Hi, I cannot speak for all of the transfers avaiable through the OLC but the Qualcast side cover transfer that I have used was definitely peel and stick and it worked very well. I dont have any useful tips as I am not that good at getting them straight myself!

I would not worry about getting them that straight I would think on a production line making mowers that very little time is given to the application of stickers and transfers!
