Getting to the point on my restoration where it is time to apply the decals. I've got an expensive set of vinyl cut decals and don't want to screw them up. It's probably not brain surgery, but how about some tips (the decals did not come with any instructions). The last time I worked with any type of decals was when I was a boy building model airplanes and cars (too long ago!).

OK, position the decal exactly where you want it and run masking tape along the top edge and on the body work. Start on one that is straight if possible as they are the easiest.
Hinge the decal up and remove the paper downwards along the top edge. Smooth the decal down at the same time and you will eliminate any bubbles etc. Hard to describe, but that"s how I do it. You get it exactly where you want it and it can be perfect. Like I said though, start on a flat one to get the experience.

Senator, i put a little dishpan soap in a bucket of water and put a little soapy water on the area to receive the decal. that way you can move it around a little to get it located just right, the work the water and air bubbles. out from the center out. if you apply them dry you don't have that option. just did my 641 ford that way and they came out perfect. make sure the decal area is clean. hope this helps, chuck
