Want to Paint M Stripes in Garage -- Help Please

Going to tackle a garage transformation project with flooring, shelving, etc...one of the things I would like to get done is to paint the M stripes/logo on the walls. Anyone have any experience with this, ie how to find the right colors, is there a stencil that I could trace out for the image, etc...

Honestly save yourself the hassle and have a large decal printed. Cost wise probably on par and will take 60 seconds to install.

I thought about doing something along that line but in the end decided to keep it a little more simple and accent with other pieces.

I just pencil marked the wall and taped it for the stripes.
I used a laser level for the long horizontal runs

You mean like this?

I just marked the walls vertically every few feet and then used painters tape.

I went with the original M colors.
