    I just dropped this off tonight 7/11/14 to have it restored to like new condition. I need the decal set, lid and cap catcher. So far I have not had much success finding any online. It is a model 183 from the late sixties I believe. I am CERTAIN of model, it is stamped on the back of the cooler. Any help is appreciated. The second photo is not my chest but one with the decal I need. The first
    photo is my chest.

      The folks at might be able to help. When I was replacing pieces of my Vendo, I called them numerous times for advice and parts. Also, one like this was posted on CW recently, you might be interested for reference. Good luck!

      Daddy_Nobucks, I just got the fully restored cooler back this evening and it looks fantastic. I did contact Sodajerkworks and sadly they said this decal would be very difficult to find. In the mean time I an am still searching for lid. Does anyone have suggestions?
