i wish i had the skill level to restore mine propper

I'm sure you can. Just locate a reasonable plateing shop for your metals. Check out Memory Lane Classis in Michigan for all the parts you might need and let the paint fly.

I think I will first etch it out on a piece of paper by laying paper on the tank and drawing it as I see it through the paper. Then good pics to replicate and try to paint it myself or if unable to do it good enough my self, Ill try to find a local artist to assist me. Someone cheap but better than me.

Good question though. Memory Lanes have a lot of decals but im sure this is one they wont have so the painted version will have to do i guess.
