My Quadangle build is all finished bar the decals. I must admit I'm more than a little apprehensive about the job, so can anybody offer any advice ?

A couple of people have told me they apply dry, and that the biggest headache is trying not to crease the fork decals where they go over the bend of the fork near the headstock ?

As always thanks in advance. Norm

I always put new decals on a f&f before rebuilding a bike... it's much easier.
I also use soapy water... give you a much better chance of sliding them into the correct position.  :daumenhoch:

Don't put em on dry.  "nono"

Thanks for the heads up regarding soapy water.  :daumenhoch:

I did plan to fit the decals before building, but worried about bashing them when building the bike.

Soapy water all day long...make sure you have a good soft 'squeegee' to disperse the water...

All done, soapy water on the clear decals, and a hair dryer on the rub on's ( forks ).

Thanks for all the advice guys  :daumenhoch:

Apologies to Brett and Scott, as I'll be bending your ears again when I start the next build.
