    3M Decal Installation

    I have a 2000 yamaha SUV that I got stickers for to replace the old ones that were beat up. It states 3M on the backing. I need ideas on the best way to install them without messing up as they are not made anymore and this is the last set! see attachment.
    Any tips/tricks appreciated. As you can see these are long and need to be position correctly otherwise they will come off looking bad.Click image for larger version.

    Get you an empty spray bottle and fill it with water and add a few drops of dish washing liquid. Spray the entire area where the sticker will be going. This will allow you to move the sticker around to get it right where you want it. Once you get it in position take a credit card and start from the middle to work the water and air out. I usually let it dry a little while before removing the application paper. Hope this helps. Cliff

    do not use a soap with amonia in it (windex). baby shampoo is a good soap to use at it will not mess with the adhesive on the decals
