Hi all, first time poster.
I'm restoring a Austro-Daimler Vent-Noir II. I've been making tracings and crayon rubbings of the original "Austro-Daimler" decals on the downtube. It gives me good scans and measurements of the pitch and dimensions of the lettering, but not so much the actual shapes of the glyphs (at least, not good enough to make a nice cut vinyl replacement). The originals are just too beat up for an accurate trace.
Does anyone have any better source material that can help? Maybe high res scans of old Daimler brochures and catalogs? They use the same font for the AD marque, just a tighter pitch for general reading use, but I can work with that.
Also, the "Vent-Noir II" decal on the top tube is completely gone, just a ghost mark left on the smoky chrome. I've found a good pic of the flat text sans the "II" part, but a higher res scan would still be appreciated.
