    I wanted to clean up this 16" 325 bar for my 261 and I've heard it many times, so I went to Tractor Supply and picked up some Light Ford Gray. It's very close to Stihl gray. Didnt turn out too bad if I do say so myself.

    Print one out on paper and make a stencil, cut the logo out with an exacto.

    Go to your local print shop have them print a sticker for $2 a piece don't forget to put clear coat on it. Here's one I did. [​IMG]

    I did one with the paint you have but I painted black first put on a correct size decal then painted it white then clear. Turned out nice but I cant find a pic

    The reason I did all this, is because this bar is in great condition. Just someone had stored it badly. Plus it gave me a great opportunity to try that paint for a match.
