Before fitting your new Thwaites 5 Tonne Decal Set, you need to make sure you remove all trace of the old ones. To ensure you place them correctly, first take pictures of the original stickers. Then peel off the ones you are replacing, dependent on quality you may need to gently heat them up first.
Once you have removed the old decals, prepare the surface for the new ones. Clean away any glue, dirt and grease, then use a lint free cloth and dry the area. You may need to use an adhesive remover, try WD40.
Your kit comes ready to apply, but first remove the stickers from their packaging and lay them down flat. For the best performance, always apply your new decals in a dry & clean location.
Start by positioning your decal, consider using masking tape to hold it down. Now remove part of the adhesive’s backing paper and using a squeegee, press the sticker down into place. Next, pull away another inch or so of the backing paper and smooth this section down into place. Move your way down the decal, concentrating on fitting an inch at a time. Finish off with the squeegee, smoothing down the entire decal.
Start by filling a spray bottle with water and a small amount of washing up liquid. Now lightly spray your application area, leaving a thin film of water. Position your decal, this time no masking tape is needed. The damp surface will help hold it into place and still allow you to move it around slightly. As above, remove an inch of the backing paper and smooth the decal down into place. Move your way down the decal, fitting a small section at a time. Once in place, use the squeegee to smooth it down and remove the water out from the edges.
Note: Rapid Air Reflective is designed for dry fitting, and is unsuitable for wet application.
