Hi Terry,
welcome to the forum!

Restoring Snowbirds is a very small "niche" part of this hobby..which is itself a very small niche hobby! So there isnt a lot of data out there..

As far as I have seen, no one has posted any good color matches for "Snowbird Red"..It might be out there on the internet somewhere, but if it is, I haven't seen it..There are no reproduction decals available for Snowbirds..

Post some photos if you can!

And are you sure model number 362 is correct?
If it is, its not a 1962 model..
please double-check that model number..
If it is actually a 362, then its probably a 1975 or newer model year machine..
photos will help clear it up!

Did you perhaps mean model 263?
if so, that would be a 1963 or 1964 model..

thanks,
Scot

Reproduction decals

Hi, as far as the decals go, if you get a decent picture of the original ones, the guy at clickitandstickit.com can reproduce anything. I send him stuff from my ariens all the time and he makes perfect replicas. He just finished ones for a tiller I'm working on. Check out my album of my 62 ariens to see his work...
