Would this guy do the whole name from scratch? In that case, I'd get a good
picture (which you've already done) and dimensions. You should then sand
down the whole downtube and repaint it. Fortunately, it's gloss black.
However, looking at the picture of the whole frame you have posted on that
site, the "Hetchins" logo looks much better than the seat tube decal and
there are a lot of other areas that need attention. You should really re-do
the whole frame. Maybe Nick has all the decals you need here.
