I'll take some high rez pictures of them as straight on as I can and try to trace something up. I have some experience retracing CPOs so maybe I can get you something at least usable.

Okay here you go - a .pdf and .png attached. Since I don't have a large format scanner I had to use a camera and try to adjust for lens curve. I did my best to match measurements though so hopefully everything lines up. It should be awfully close no matter what.

I also didn't have an exact font match so used a very similar one and then manually adjusted a few things to match. It wouldn't pass for an original, that's for sure, but it'll get you close.

If you're able to test print on large paper and let me know what doesn't/doesn't match - I can make adjustments, too. Lastly, remember, the metal itself has rounded corners. My artwork doesn't show that.

Red = holes to cut
Black = Ink
White = No Ink

Wow that was super fast! Thank you very much, it seems pretty much spot on. I'll try to print it in paper as a test and then go for the real thing. Thanks again! Cheers!
