Brian or anyone else know where to get a Wisconsin engine logo. There's a guy with them on ebay, but he wants way too much for one.

I have water slide material that I can print onto. I'm gonna give it a try soon. Either the reddish orange or the blue.

Dan,
You could check with these folks, I have seen the decal at the shows in their display and if memory serves it was the blue one. Don't know how this compares $$ wise with shipping added.:confuse:

Call off the hounds. Got my daughter (14yrs old) to show me how to use "Gimp", a photo/workshop program. I found a pic with a blank background which made it lots easier to make a printable image. She worked on it for a bit, then once I knew how, I built the lower portion of the legs. My image didn't have any feet on the horse, or color as it was gray-scale, so I put in the colors too. The faint clock image was too light to show up, but my daughter imported a clock face & incorporated it (gotta have her show me how to do that). Anyways, I'll be making my own water-slide decals now. They say they last a long time too. You seal them with clear spray, let dry a few minutes, then slid off onto whatever. I have several sheets of the water-slide material, so I'm good to go. This means I can make the tiny text decals like air filter instructions, etc.
Here's the image. I'll likely print one tonight on the water-slide stuff.

Came across a problem with my water-transfer decal. With my engine red, when I applied the decal, all but the black virtually disappeared! The ink is semi-transparent, so the bright red bled right through. I had to re-print on white water-transfer material & leave a white border as it's too intricate where "Air Cooled Engines" hangs off each end. Good enough for me though.

The ones I cut on clear would work great on engines painted white. To show, I saved the one that disappeared & placed it on my truck just so you can see.
