I have an Edison Standsrd that has about 90% of the gold stripping worn off the Bedplate.
The paint is real nice and I don't want to do a full strip and repaint. I would like to remove
What's barely left, clean It, and re decal! And recommendations on who to contact?

What model Standard is it?

If it's an earlier model, and you have a steady hand, you may be able to redo the striping by hand, using a liner brush and a straight edge.

If it's an machine that had hand drawn stripes origionaly, I would not use decals. It makes it too obvious the bedplate has been redone.

I'm with Stephen. Generally, I'd rather see some good, honest wear than a modern decal - no matter how good the decal.
