Water with a drop or two of dish soap in a spray bottle. The soap only cuts the surface tension of the water, it does not add lubrications. Wet down the frame, position your sticker, the water will allow you to move it. Then when you have the correct location you squeegee out the water, if you don

I was assuming the decals had nothing over them, you may want to get a second opinion before you do it.

Hey, let us know how it goes and what works best. I also ordered decals from yobetty, but havent recieved them yet. Come to think of it, it's been almost two weeks since the check cleared. How long did it take for yours to arrive?

over 3 months. BUT she was in the hospital. The first time i ordered them from her it only took about a month and at that time i had won some items from her on ebay so its not the QUICKEST thing to get the decals but she always comes thru.
