Thanks for the thread, just after I decaled 2 of my machines! I found the trimming to be the hardest part, but this advice all helps. I think I'll go back and do some more trimming short of the edges as suggested, and I looked like the hacksaw method as well.

Another thing, the little rainbow bits should line up I assume? I did the sides first, which have more room to play re placement. Should have done the front first, as it has to be precise.

Quoted from jimbeam42:

The little circles are registration marks and the colours would be the measure the density of each process colour. They are just for the printing process, not meant to line up the sides and front.

See, I knew that, didn't need to line them up afterall. Feel much better................

Quoted from DarkWizard:

I'm not a hardcore restorer, nor do I claim to be. I am just trying to get a passable result. As I am learning now, I should have just bought a machine in decent shape.

Never - restoring is like bonding with your child when you breast feed ( I assume, not having breast fed myself). You form an attachment with a restored machine that you don't get with one you bought in perfect shape.
