Thank to forum member Erik, we have some replacement drawings of the decals for this machine.  Just take them to a print shop and print out some decals.  Here is the drawing on top and the comparison photos below (Note the link for the files to use is below the photos).  You are allowed to use these for any non-profit uses.  Professional restorers can also use these for their restorations of Manley Popcorn Machines.  IF you use them, please post a photo of your restored machine in the Photo Gallery.
