Engine Decals

Hi guys.

I have just bought some new decals for the Yamaha however i am slightly concerned if this is going to be an easy job putting them on (having flashbacks to all the airfix models i buggered up as a kid).

Has anyone any tips for applying, can i water mount as some the letters are individual and trying to line them up straight will be a nightmare.

Cheers

try this sir

small amount of soapy water makes life very easy, individual letters if going over existing just float them on one by one, failing that get a low tak masking tape, apply over letters, peal of backing paper and apply as one ensure squeegee'd down as req carefully peel away masking tape, ~~(application tape normally is applied at point of sale)

enjoy best done in warm conditions
