Looking for engine decal

Does anyone know where I can find this decal; I need two of them, one for each side.

The decal is on my 94 205.

Thanks

You can use a blow dryer to remove - carefully, wipe off old adhesive with label remover and then reapply with 3M permanent spray adhesive.. and re apply...If decal survives treatment. Special process to make they decals. Chrome effect with metallic type silver ink. I have the same problem with the bubble. The adhesive needs to be replaced. However not sure if the decal would survive the restoration process.

Ah...sorry... I am trying to figure out how to recreate the silver part. Roland Printers have a mettalic ink that might do the trick.

Is the black plastic cover just a beauty cover? Can you just remove it?

You refer to "3M permanent spray adhesive." Which of the 3M spray adhesives would be best for re-applying the original decals to the engine cover? 20? 76? 77? 80? 90? Something else? I'm particularly concerned about heat. I may stick a thermometer on that engine cover next time out to see how hot things are getting where the decals go.

I took off my plastic engine cover cuz it covers the ECU. Heat is the killer of electronics and i want my ecu to cool as fast as it can...

Regarding the spray adhesives.. I have only used the 77.... that should more than enough for a decal.. 90 is overkill
