some images for Panasonic Decal replication...

My wife bought a silhouette cameo 2d vinyl/paper/fabric cutter and has been making some T-shirts and custom stuffed animals and stickers and other such things and I thought I might finally get some decals on my '87 DX-2000. I used some stock Panasonic images for the seat tube (I did have to add the lines) and fork logos but the model logo was where the most of the work was b/c I used a brochure I found on google images and it took a few hours in paint shop to sort out.. it's not perfect but I guess it's all-right. I haven't had her cut them out yet but I figured I would share what I've got if anyone could benefit from it.

I love the bike.. it's a nice ride, especially compared to the M2. It's my rainy-day no guilt, not one piece of polished aluminum bike. Also lately snowy-day and gravel (mud) grinder bike too. I can't believe it has been over 5 years since I got it.

That's a pretty darn good job for paint shop!

I'm thinking about a vinyl cutter at some point, can't wait to see how these translate to the bike.

The decals turned out pretty good! I even made a little P for the head tube tho I'm not sure about the scale. The vinyl my wife had had "not-permanent" adhesive so we will see how they stay on there. I know the couple of stickers she made me for the back window of my car are lifting slightly at the tips of the real fine sharp logos after a couple of washes w/ a wool mitt. I decided to simplify the dx-2000 logo, deleting the lines between the letters. One of the downtube stickers wound up a little cocked, but it's on the non-drive side (so who cares?) Bike's not perfect anyway. I painted it with the hammered finish to help hide any imperfections in the paint job plus any chips/scratches. (#beaterbike)
