Nice Lancia Randy, should be a quick one too.

I usually use micro set with old decals, if they don't shatter into pieces as soon as you try to slip them off the paper that is.
If they still want to come off after they are dry I brush some Gator's Grip Acrylic Hobby Glue under them.
I use same stuff to put glasses to bodies.

Cheers

I use Future Floor polish( it has a new brand name now) It dries glossy and actually helps the decal conform, a little like micro set.

Thanks guys
@Peter. Fingers are the 1 exception to the rule,even 3 days later
@Aki. Thanks Aki. It tested very fast, especially through the corners.A set of trued Barc Bites have serious grip. The decals had a lot of long thin sections that shattered trying to get them off the backing.
@Dan I used Pledge (future) to glue the numbers to the backing (I stole a roll of the wifes canning jar labels :lol: )
