Default Wicked lite decal size?

i have been searching for Wicked lite decals. i have found two places that have the files (Garry Alvis garryalvis@gmail.com and Gil Montague gil@thecycleshed.co.uk, velocals won't get back to me) but both have said they are not sure if the sizing is correct. Gil says his is 58mm by 30mm. Could someone please measure their original decal? just talking about the "Wicked Lite" decal.

AFAIK Wicked Lite is the most prevalent of Fat Chance decals. The company themselves ran out of all decals except these and branded anything that came in for a refinishing job with them for a while.

Width, OK, but I'm not sure I could honestly do the math on how to calculate the precise height of decals on a curve... Gil's later model decals are fine looking and I bet they'd be great. Otherwise just get your refinisher to get in touch with SSSink.

He probably does and he deserves all our business. Ted is the man.

to get the height on a curve simply put a piece of tape on the decal mark the top and bottom remove the tape, stick it to a flat surface and measure between the two points...

Well I guess that's why you live in Hawaii and I'm trapped in frozen Winnipeg...
