Construction vehicle decals?

Someone was making a decal set for GHQ construction vehicles a few years ago. They often popped up on eBay. Anyone know where I can get a set?

It was the late, great John Coots....

There is a site on the web - I will try and find it and post it - that has EPS files for almost every major company logo - including CAT, Komatsu, etc... - it would make easy work of doing a set of these for yourself - since you would be violating all sorts of copyright laws if you tried to sell them...

Check here - an amazing resource - but you need a vector graphics program like Illustrator...

Wonderful. Ironically, the decals are going on a few GHQ sets I purchased from his collection. Anyone have an extra? I'd even be willing to dig into my Sunrise parts hoard for trade.

I hope Roland comes out with Komatsu decals too. The GHQ excavator is actually a Komatsu PC400 from the late 1980's:
