Smile Best place to order decals

I recently purchased a '79 Stars and Stripes and I want to restore it back to new. The stars and the mastercraft lettering are fading so I was wondering where is the best place to order these decals? My gelcoat isn't the best but I think a good buff might get that back to new. I also own a '99 dodge dakota which I want Mastercraft decals on to match the boat. Where is the best place to get these from and how much it might cost for the boat decals?

Thanks boyz

I have bought a few decals from this guy on ebay.

They look good, but I havn't put them on yet to let you know how they stick and hold up.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Thanks guys,

I think I will try to see if either of these two guys can make the '79 lettering--the 80's style is a little different. I will let you know how it goes.

'79 all the time

Did you ever find out what font the '79 lettering was? I want to add some lettering to the rear of the boat and it would be sweet to use the '79 font.

Thanks for the help, I email that guy on ebay--hopefully he can make the '79 lettering.

Here's a bitmap of the graphics from a '78. You can take it to a local sign shop and they can make the graphics for you.

I'll throw in my

I hate stickers on boats. Stickers + water = peeling. end of discussion

I used the graphics from skiboathelp.com and took them to a sign shop. I had them cut them backwards where they actually kept the MasterCraft sticker and I kept the outline. I painted mine on the boat using that techique. There is a picure of them in my gallery.
