      Jim,

      I can take the pics somebody made (I posted the links earlier) and copy
      the outline of the logo. But I'm not sure how the decal would turn out
      once it's on the front panel. I'm kinda use to the painted look. I use
      decals all the time when building models but I didn't try them as a
      replacement yet.
      thanks for the tip.

      =Dan
