Anyone who knows where I can find this stuff email me [email protected] or just replty on the bb so other people can get decals in case they were looking for some as well.

Simon,

If you have a good photo or scan of some of the stickers you need, I can produce a vector-based file that any vinyl shop can cut out for you. As long as it's for a good and pure Alfa cause, I'm happy to do the work :)

Here's a sample of something I rendered last week for a friend of mine. These stickers were OEM on the back window of most Alfas from '70-'72, I believe.

Anthony...
You should make them into vinyl sticker just like JoeCab described.
I know there is a lot of shopping mall where they sell "stickers" to rice now. I know there is one in Glendale Galleria.
Just bring them the vector file (like *.AI, *.eps, *.CDR)

Or you can try a product which I found in model train stores (or model airplane). You print the logo onto a special piece of paper (either clear or white), you spray the special coating (included in the kit) onto the paper and let it dry, after that, it acts like the stickers found in 1/24 Tamiya model kit and water proof!
-----------
For the vector file of the logo itself, try -

http://www.logolink.co.jp/04.html

http://www.logos.free.fr/

or try searching for them on Google.com - search for champion.ai, championsparkplug.ai, champion.eps, etc.

A vinyl (and chromatec) sheet that I created for some of my models. I found some of the logos on those two websites. (*.AI format) And traced the logo of Honda Motorcycle in Adobe Illustrator.

Hey JoeCab!
You should ask a shop to cut out some of them and sell them on eBay!! :D

Since the Trans Am artwork is 4 color, it would probably need to be silk screened onto vinyl. Any shop that screens t-shirts should be able to do this.

1 and 2 color stuff can easily be die-cut into ready-to-apply vinyl.
