   I sent this to  They may make up some new Decals.

One reader of this site, Joe, received this decal set after ordering from RadioDaze.  I am waiting for a possible follow up from Joe about  RadioDaze.

I hope this sorts out.  Radiodaze has been good to me so far.  (I do not take any $$ from any vendors or advertising).
