Probably been posted before on this subject, but has anyone managed to find anyone who can reproduce the white lettering as original on the front of the MK1 and 2 heater case?

Example of a MK2 plastic heater case that requires improvement to the white lettering.

I'd recommend using a stencil and painting these on. They were probably water transfers or some form of screen print or simply a stamp.

Have a look at Letraset dry transfer letters. You should be able to find a font that's  close if not the same in white. Once applied, finish with a lacquer cote.

I did consider using Letraset but the product seems to be unavailable, do you know anyone who still supplies it in white?
