So I need to apply a large decal. I know the best way to do it is to spray the area where the decal goes with soapy water, then apply the decal, position and push the air bubbles out and let it dry.

What kind of soap and how much (ratio water to soap)?

Also, any other tips?

Thanks,

K

(kind of like the old firebird hood decal. i like to use a 3m rubber squeegee to float the liquid out once in place. start from the center and squeegee out. if you get a tiny air bubble and cant squeegee it out, use a stick pin to pop the bubble and squeegee flat. here are the squeegees. any body shop supply can get them, only a couple dollars. and they wont tear the decal!!

Thanks. I ended up using a few drops of dish soap in a spray bottle. I think I sprayed a little bit to much on since i had trouble getting it to catch in some places. I just keep working it and it finally stuck. It dried and came out really nice.
