Heres what you do. Get a sponge, then get it wet and sqeeze as much water out as possible. then wipe it were you want the decal to go, get it a little wet, put the decal on the way you want it. Then let it dry.

HERES why you do it, when you get the spot wet you can move the decal around without getting little bubbles in the on the decal. It just makes it look a whole let better.

Just thought everyone should know.

corey11,
You can add a couple of drops of dish detergent, like Dawn. Then put in a little rubbing alcohol. This helps it all to evaporate faster. This makes applying decals a way lot easier! Just remember when it's all dry, then wash the hole canopy with just plain water to get rid of any soap residue thats left on the surface.

Plain old windex glass cleaner works great too.

The Windex fine if your not put it on fresh paint. The ammonia in the Windex will attack the paint.

Another thing if the decals are going on a plastic canopy be sure to seal the edges with a tiny bit of thin jet or something similar or else the edges will lift.

the pure Windex solution is just too slippery.

I use just plain water w/ a few drops of Dawn.
Have to try adding the alcohol. Thanks Mort.

z11355,
Don't add to much of the rubbing alcohol. Because it too affect fresh paint. Most of the time I just use a few drops of Dawn.
