I've had a request to post some of the decal methods I used, so here are some things to consider for first-timers.
Cabinet prep is important and time-consuming. I used a heat gun and scraper to get the decals off, and then just sanded until the glue was gone.
This first video was somewhat helpful but I didn't use all his techniques.
and Bryan Kelly's IJ
restoration post has a lot of good detail. I tried to follow this method closely whenever possible.
Regarding decals I used a method similar to this guy in the second video.
After laying down the decal I used a flashlight to get it lined up, then used painters tape to hold down one end. I took the other end and cut back some of the bottom to lay the other side down and make it stick, using the flashlight to check alignment. I took the tape off and had a helper hold that side up while I slowly peeled the backing and used a bondo spreader to smooth the decal on. After the decal is applied use a pressure roller or press down hard everywhere with a soft cloth. I took a sharp razor blade and made the initial trim, then used a straight edge and fresh razor for the final cut where just a tiny bit of cab shows.
I'm still adding to my shop log, but there are some pics here:
