Thanks. I did a quick search on ebay and found this:

Why do mine look like they were 2 color or shadowbox?

Because they are. When I got my replacement from BAWS it came in two pieces. The black background and the white lettering. Here is a picture of my replacement:

Nice! Do you have a side shot of the larger MC decal? And the back?

I buffed a few test areas. This is my first time using a circular polisher so I need to practice a little more. I only spent about 4min on what you see in the pics.

Step 1: 3M 05954 super duty compound with wool pad, circular/rotary from HF.
Spet 2: 3M 06064 Perfect-It machine polish on 5725 black foam pad.

Now, I believe the finesse it compound falls right in between the 2, but I wanted to try this first. I also have to hit some scratches with 1500 grit.

I have 2 3M stripe off wheels and will see how quickly the decals can be removed.

Thanks! I'm going to town tonight, starting at 7pm. My co-worker has a PC 7424 and will swing by. I think the PC will shine in tight areas. I might buy a 3-4" spot pad setup. I have a 8" wool/foam pad and going to concentrate on the large stuff for now.
