Re: Tank Protector?
What kind of tank protector are you talking about?
For the standard $15 ones that protect the part near the seat, I'd clean the tank with soap and water then put on a good coat of wax before applying to protect the paint and finish underneath. No real need to heat the tank for this kind, although you may leave the sticker out in the sun or heat to make it pliable
If you're looking at tank-slappers (the clear stuff) use one drop of dish-washing soap in a spray bottle filled with water. Spray it on, then apply the sticker. It will let you move the sticker into position before you squeegee (sp?) the water out and stick it into place.......I HIGHLY recommend these things, especially with the reported paint issues of the new 1Krr. My RC used to get scuffs near the knees and the tank-slappers fit so cleanly you could hardly tell that they were on the tank.
