    Probably have to have them made, I don't know of any major manufacturer that has replacement decals available. I would think under the clear coat to protect them, though I have seen it done both ways. With the Giant the logos are fairly straight forward, I would see what a graphic arts shop would charge to make a set, or even have someone paint them on prior to the clear coat.
