Re painting graphics on Delkims?

Post by Andytheammer »

Anyone know of someone who can re paint the white graphics on some original well used Mk1 Delkim TXI’s & a R2000 receiver,
As over the time the white writing has worn off, Yeah I know “Tackle tart” eh! 🙄 But feel they could do with a freshen up as served me well 😜

Looking at mine (which is wearing a bit) I'd say the lettering was originally stamped on with paint of some sort. I doubt they'd do it but try Delkim first if you haven't already as they might still have the stamp (or whatever it was).

Received a generic reply from Delkim

As of 1st September 2020 we regret that we can no longer repair any original range products. These include the Delkim Standard and Tx-i alarms, Rx2000 and Rx2004 receivers and Tx2000 micro transmitter, which ran from 1992 – 2003. As these items could be 17-28 years old, we trust that you will understand why this is no longer possible. We apologise to any of our loyal customers that this may affect

I think I'd rather have no graphics on something, rather than very badly worn lettering.

Rubbing with Brasso (or sometimes just toothpaste) takes it off without leaving any scratches.

what about a set of laser cutting white adhesive graphic?
find a picture of the good condition ones have them done by a print shop.
or leave them as a survivor set
retired so time to smell the roses.
