X Star Graphics

I am trying to find X-Star logos/graphics for my 2004. I have contacted a dealer and they stated the decals were no longer available. I asked about decals up to 2010 with the same answer. Any ideas on how to get replacements?

I'm sure Mike will be along shortly to provide any assistance he can. He does an amazing job with decals.

Yup - the big x-start graphics are gone... they need to be re-drawn. those graphics are passed my photo shop abilities. People I know with better skills say they are not that hard. I suggest hiring someone from the local Junior College to draw them. I have a graphics artist - she charges $100 per hour. those graphics take about 4 hours to draw - print test and tweak before they are final.

Doesn't BAWS have graphics for every model? I'd call down there.

That would be a good bet.

I figured these decals would be readily available from the dealer. I am also surprised the aftermarket hasn't jumped all over the business.

Many resources for older decals... not many resources for X graphics... but good vinyl shops will recreate and charge big $$$

I have exhausted most sources on this. I called BAWS and unfortunately they are closing up for good. Very nice folks and hated to hear that. I called their source, and they only go up to 2000 model year which is just cut vinyl. I have called most all dealers with no luck. I believe someone in the sign/vinyl business could do good reproducing these if Master Craft is dropping them completely. If I could get the files from MC I could definitely have them printed myself, but most of the wrap/sign/vinyl shops I have talked to don't seem interested in reproducing the art.

Ebay had some a while ago for newer models and you tell them your colors. priced around $200 IIRC.
