New here, but would love to get the guy's information.

also, if I can find the guy's card on this mess that is my desk at home, I'll give you guys the info for a fellow who makes the rotation stickers and the original "use marine grade oil" sticker for the valve cover.

thanks
Bill

I have managed to duplicate the name plates for our boats they are made from white medical grade nylon. These were measured exactly from the ones on my boat. I left the mounting holes out from the front side for the people that have filled their mounting holes in on their boats. On the back side the original spots for the holes are dimpled for drilling them if you would like to mount them with screws.

Did you use the DXF I create? These are cool. I am trying to work on creating a whole font that will also include numbers

I looked at what you had done and the measurements were off a bit, I am not sure why maybe during the translations in different programs it happens a lot with files, but the spacing on yours ended op being off so I just re-drew everything these line up directly over my current ones I am working on numbers now.

I have the "32 " and I have pictures of the "27 and 41 ".

Will you be willing to share your files? I'd be interested to see where mine differed. I think I took mine from an overlay of a brochure.

Check out my post on how to make new ones cheaply ( about $25 ) and a couple hours of labor in the kitchen.
