So I am trying to have my cousin recreate the original epo rudder sticker for me. The only picture I have mis fuzzy and broken up. I was wondering if anyone had a really nice logo on there's that they could send a picture to me. Thank you so much guys!!
These are the images I have and I need something better and more clear.

That first photo is a pretty good starting point. Use it as a background in Illustrator to redraw it.

The only color on the sticker was the "EPO" letters - they are red (as you can see - faded - in the second photo).

The original stickers were made of a fairly thin foil.

I will be interested in this logo too if you are able to re-make it. I have a set of old EPO's that I'm planning on refinishing this winter. Or maybe I'll get fancy and just put on the new EPO 3 sticker and pretend they are the newer ones! :?

Yea my cousin said he could redralw it if no one has a nice picture. I will post a finished project if that's what we have to do. When we get done it will be a vinyl decal not the foil like this. I am thinking about doing just the black foil shape and the epo letters. And ditch the rest.
Also I am redoing my original epo right now and I am going to paint them with the epoxy paint like the new epo. White and black. I prefer white rudders just so you can see grass when it is stuck on the rudders.

Would be easy to redraw from your images using CorelDraw, Photoshop. If your cousin has problems let me know and i'll do it for you and forward any format you need. In the correct formats you can reproduce this in any size and the quality will remain perfect!

So we finally got around to fiddle with this project again. Here is what we came up with. It is not exactly the same as the original but a cross between the new epo and the original logo. Let me know what ya think!! This is just a screenshot not the actual sticker yet.
