I had the local sign shop make me some vinyl numbers to match the style of the original Curtiss strut numbers. You can see an original strut on the right used as a pattern.
Paul Dougherty had some Curtiss factory logo decals made for his Jenny project and I got his spare set. The factory put their logo on the wing struts, cabane struts, king post struts, landing gear struts and landing gear airfoil. They were originally stencils, but with decal technology, they look the same and are much easier to make.
And a close up of the decal.
This is how I know they used stencils back then. This is the Curtiss logo I restored last year. From what I can tell, there were two sizes - small (like what I used) and the large ones with the letters paralleling the grain.
All the decals in place
This is the second varnish coat.
King post struts
Once everything dries, I'll lightly sand again and put the final (3rd) varnish coat.
