Any of you guys use rubber stamps to number your engines. Cant seem to find the right size and fonts.

I've purchased vinyl decals and "etched" nameplates by specifying the font and size. Try contacting custom stamp sellers on eBay to see if they can produce the specific type face you need.

I have used them to restore Lionel Post War engines only because many of the originals were stamped. I wouldn't consider them for other lettering projects. Its very difficult to get consistent results with a stamp. It was not uncommon to take 50 attempts to get a satisfactory result.

dry transfer

So I used the dry transfer numbers. My engine is semi flat in color so how do I protect the dry transfer numbers with a coating of some type.

But mask off the plastic windows, or remove them, before spraying, or they will get cloudy..... and you can't fix that.....
