The following applies to water slide decals only
It has been suggested that these older decals can be less prone to cracking if they are first cut to outline, and then sprayed lightly with a fresh coat of clear laquer. Allow that to dry, and then try soaking the decal and follow the instructions.
Over time our water slide decals have become more fragile and difficult to apply. However they retain their bright colors and detail.
We have two suggestions to assist in application:
- After wetting the decal with warm water to which you have added a drop or two of dish detergent, allow decal to lay flat for 10 to 15 minutes before removing from paper backing. VERY Carefully remove from backing and apply to tank as usual.
- If you cannot get the decal off whole without tearing, cut decal carefully around the border. Spray paper backing with 3M permanent spray glue, and apply to tank. When dry for 2 to 3 days, spray lightly with clear lacquer.
This works well for a show or display motor, but is not advised for a motor that will be used in water.
Small S&O and other accessory decals remain easy to apply.
