Before I blasted and powder coated the tin on my Thing engine, I took photos to reference the markings that were on it. Does anyone make a rubber stamp with white ink to replicate the markings, or would anyone else be interested in one if I were to have a bunch made up?

I think you would be better off by cutting a stencil and hit it with a light coat of white spray.
