I just recently purchased a wheel horse that I was told was a 1974 raider 10 after doing research on this forum my ID tag says that it is a 1968 raider 9 but the stickers all say raider 10 The Tecumseh engine has got the b code on it which says this it makes it a raider 9 why did they put raider 10 badges on it if it's a raider 9

I recently began pondering what all i could 3d print to dress up a horse. I'm pretty good with deaign sofware and came up with a couple small items to start, and figured i can easily print things like headlight covers, hood ornaments, and badges of all sorts.Then I wondered if maybe rather than a decal if i 3d printed an embossed plate or sorts with the appropriate graphics in 3d. These could be enamel painted, or printed in a silver that would give a brushed nickel type of finish.
Here's a couple photos of what ive created thus far in some gray test material. Please let me know what ya think.

Question....Decal placement, before or after clear coat? Which is the best for longevity?

I am currently doing a ring, piston, hone rebuild on a K 321 off a Ford LGT 145 Tractor on this machine they actually welded the rails to the bottom pan (see pics). My intention here is to put this puppy in a red machine (312-8 or GT14). I definitely have the small pan with the expanded bottom for the long dipper.
Here's my questions:
> Can I carefully remove the rails from the pan, cutoff the old front axle mounting bracket(s) and then drill holes in the flanges to mount to the Wheel Horse rails.
> Since the engine is side mounted will the expanded bottom fit between the standard Wheel Horse rails?
> If not possible to make this old pan work what flat pan would work and do I need to get the expanded bottom one (big dipper}
> any recommendations here would be appreciated don't want to go down to many blind holes here...….
