You commented "VHT is a division of Dupli•Color, Inc.".

In looking around for the VHT product you recommend in this thread, I ran across a DupliColor product sold at AutoZone.

Do you believe this is the same product you used only, retailed differently?

Dupli-Color/Gloss black vinyl & fabric coating

I'd like to add an addendum to this thread.

If anyone is looking for and needing a GT 14 dash or shift plate panels, and are tired of searching eBay and going to countless meets to find them, you might check out Glen Pettit's repos.

I don't know Glen and we've never met and I know nothing of the quality of his offerings, but if you need one of these panels, Glen is an RS member and VENDOR, so its highly likely you are going to get what you are seeking and be treated fairly.

What I see looks very accurate to me visually as far as detail.

You will however have to follow the advice offered in this tread to finish the panels to original looking items.

@ztnoo thank you for the information.

I have bought items from Glen and they are top notch, so you don't need to worry about that! :thumbs:

I'd recommend, using caution, and testing in an inconspicious area first...

but, can attest the brake fluid works on most plastics. 

Very nice job on the dash.  :handgestures-thumbsup:

I can tell any reader that this post is spot-on.  Thank you MikesRJ for all of the time it took to write-up this process, I have printed, 3-hole punched and place in my "big-binder of great reference information".

Found this thread. I have all round hoods so no plastic dash panels to repair. 

 

I may have to go find a C-160 just so I can follow these amazing instructions!

      I am currently fixing up my late grandfathers 310-8, but I am having trouble locating some of the replacement parts. 
      I am looking for both front (15x6.00-6) and rear (22x7.5-12) tires. I have cleaned up and painted the rims, but now need tires to go on them and I am having some trouble finding these size tires. I am looking for a new muffler. The old one had holes rusted through it and I had to drill out one of the screws to get it off. If anyone knows where I can find a new muffler and screws for it, or how to modify a different muffler to fit on the tractor. I am looking for a new gas cap, preferably one with out a fuel level gauge at the top.  I was also wondering if there was a specific brand of oil that you would recommend for the engine?  If anyone has links to, or knows any information about these topics it would be greatly appreciated if you could share that info with me.

      Hello all, 
      I have owned this wheelhorse tractor since I was 5 years old. My grandfather bought this as a kit and we built it together. Unfortunately my grandfather passed a few years later taking his knowledge about this tractor with him. I need help getting this thing running again. I'm not sure on where I can buy parts, I have the original owners manual floating around somewhere but any tips or advice on where I should get started or certain questions I should be asking would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

      For the black do you use regular spray paint or vinyl dye?
       
      What type of white material do you use that does not chip or crack off?
       
      Thanks ahead of time for your responses!

      I am getting a decal set for my only tractor, the C81. I was wondering if the 55 dollar price was too much. Let me know-I am getting them tomorrow. Also,they look pretty authentic to me but i am a newb. Some feedback would be  great.

      Here is my semi-restoration project. I Just cleaned mine up a little and stripped all the sheet metal and repainted it. I used IH red paint color. I purchased this 520H at an auction a year ago for$400  it has a rock solid 62" most deck. I also have a 2 stage blower for it. I am waiting for my new bar tires. 
      Thought I would share it here
