My Monte Carlo Rallye Edition

Posting photos is easy...
Here's my (very experienced - NOT old, haha) 2004 first gen Mini.

The bonnet has a decal that says, "40 years Mini Wins Monte Carlo Rallye 1964" but it's faded so I'm currently trying to recreate it.. But I can't figure out what font they originally used for the text. ):

Try a font identifier:

Do a search for "font identifier" (I never visit this forum and have a very low post count so I can't link directly)

You're looking for a tool called WhatTheFont from myfonts dot com

You just have to upload the image and then match the letters and it will give you the font name or a font very close to it.

I did these graphics for a local mini dealer. Font is easy. It's Arial. As far as the 33 EJB, I believe I started with Arial and redrew it to match.
3M 180V3 with 3M gloss cast laminate will not fade and will give you at least 3 years on the horizontal surface before you need to think about removing or replacing.
Let me know if you need anything else.

I didn't even think of that.
Thanks! I'll try that.

I don't think it's Arial. The "S" is not the same and the text itself doesn't bold as big at the original. I also tried mixing text, like I used Verdana "S" and "9".
But thanks! I'm glad I'm not the only person experiencing the faded sticker. Ha!
