Default Perfect Circle Cruise Control

Does anyone have or know where I can get the decal for the cruise control unit on my '61? I also thought if someone could take a good close up photo, I might be able to have my brother-in-law reproduce one for me. He does some real nice graphic computer work. The cruise control unit on my car is a "Perfect Circle". The decal should say, Cadillac Cruise (which is in the center) and in small letters "Perfect Circle" around the outer edeges of the circle. My decal area is about the size of a fifty cent piece.

I'm not sure about anywhere that has a 61-62 decal. It would be great if there are repros out there. Some places like Rubber the right Way have a 63 Perfect Circle decal which appears very much the same but has a different model number on it. You might want to take a look.

Heres the link the the Rubber the Wrong Way decal page. There's a nice image that you might be able to use.

Thanks guys for the info. Here is what I did. I made my own since I don't have time to get one before the upcoming show. Besides, what I did was free...LOL I made a copy, covered it with clear packing tape on both sides and then glued it in place. Turned out pretty good. Not exactly what came on our year model, but what the heck. At least I have something to cover the blank spot. If I could figure out how to post a picture here I would. So I will add it to my photo album for you to take a peak at.

If someone knows the diameter they're supposed to be and the correct part number that goes on the decal I can post a photo suitable for printing out and applying to the cruise unit.
