Re: Decal Replacement Tips
This is how i remove and replace decals.
Use a hairdryer to heat the decal for 30 seconds, peel the old decal off. Use WD-40 and a clean white rag to remove the glue residue. Wash the fairing with liquid dishwashing soap and water. Line up your decal where you want it and note the angle that you are holding it on because more than likely it will need to be placed on the fairing in a sort of slanted position.
Peel the backing from the sticky side of the decal off, but not all the way off, just the first few inches. Smooth the decal on by hand slowly and evenly. Try not to work any air bubbles into the decal. I use my thumb and forefinger to smooth on the decal working it so air doesn't get trapped underneath. Peel more backing away as you work across the length of the decal. Now once it's on there don't just peel off the top layer of paper. Use that paper to your advantage to rub your finger down kind of hard over the entire decal to make sure it is pressed down real good. Now peel that paper off. Wax your fairing and your good to go.
