It's a beauty, a set that I suspect many of you would love to own. Of course, it's no longer easily available, but why should that stop the devoted fan? It shouldn't, assuming you own an assortment of basic bricks (or are willing to purchase them) and have access to a colour printer capable of making decals.
The first step to set restoration is to find out what pieces you will need. Securing an inventory and instructions is easy, just take a trip over to Peeron and look up the set. The inventories aren't always perfectly accurate, but they're usually very close.
Next, dig through your collection and find what you'll need. Of course, you won't have the decal sheet, but that's ok, we have another plan for that.
If you have everything you need, great! If not, a quick trip to Bricklink should fill in most of the gaps. Just remember, if you can get the official printed pieces, do, if you can't, substitute plain pieces of the same type and colour. I don't provide decals for those, since they were never meant to be made as stickers, but in this set, it's basically just the umbrella and small sign on the top of the van. Those can be replaced with plain pieces without major loss, until you find the real ones.
Now that you have the set, minus the decals, all you need to do is print out these custom decals that I have made for you. Included are the main sign, the van panels, the torsos for the chef and delivery boy, a custom pizza based on the sign design (for variation) and a new pizza box which would go nicely on a 2x2 white tile. If you didn't buy any official pizzas, the substitute will work in it's place, but the pizza is a cheap part, and having multiples makes for a nice look, so try to pick some up.
I also prefer the real, printed minifigs, but I'm giving you the option of making a couple of your own here, in case they aren't readily available.
Once you're printed and applied your decals, you can finish up the set.
Now, you own a modern restoration of a Classic Town set, soon to be the pride of your display!
If you actually try this, please, take some pics and post them here, we'd love to see your efforts!
