    help needed with Fonzie's Jalopy decals

    I recently purchased the Happy Days Fonzie's Jalopy, in need of some restoration. It has no flame decals, so I am wondering:
    Is there a place where I can download the sticker sheet, so I can print them?
    OR: if anyone out there owns the Jalopy MOB, would you be willing to please scan/photo the sticker sheet for me? I'd greatly appreciate it! Ayyy!

    I have a vintage set for sale. Scanning them will be unproductive, as the negative space is the same red-orange colors as the flame stickers themselves.

    A Cricut could produce serviceable copies. Member pmwasson, aka LaserMego produces all sorts of great vinyl stickers.
    WANTED: Dick Grayson SI trousers; gray AJ Mustang horse; vintage RC Batman (Bruce Wayne) head; minty Wolfman tights; mint Black Knight sword; minty Launcelot boots; Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Lion Rock Franky squared boots; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes, BBP TZ Burgess Meredith glasses.

    I was in touch with LaserMego, and he needs the dimensions to made a sticker. If anyone can scan the original sticker sheet (used or unused), it would help.
    With a good scan, it's possible that we could see the outline of the flame-sticker shape, and reproduce it.

    I have an original sticker set for sale. But I don't see how scanning it will help: The entire sheet is printed in red-orange and the die-cuts are barely noticeable.

    Edit: I guess I could provide the side panel dimensions and try to trace the flame image.

    The sticker sheet is pretty nondescript looking. I suppose a high dpi scan in black and white with high contrast might get a good shape of the flame die cut. Then remove the color inside the die cut and place on top of the same size color scan. A fair amount of work.
    And just to show what that decal sheet looks like
