I just got my GS tank decals in! I cant wait!

But before I begin... I have a few questions:


There were no instructions with the decal kit so, here goes:

I have a few coats of wax on meh tank. What is the best way, or is it even necessary to remove all the wax to the sticker area before application?

I have seen mentioned the wet spray application method. Does the GS tank decals already have adhesive to the backing, or is the wet spray method only to ensure the shit is straight and can move it around if you fubar it and get it crooked?

Help me out here please guys:

1.) Surface prep
2.) Adhesive on the decal that came stock, or this customer supplied wet spray stick method
3.) Placement

PM'd you with some hints & tips but briefly;

Surface prep-definately remove all traces of wax and de-grease with alcohol.

If you are unsure about alignment apply some electrical or masking tape parallel or close to the line of the original stickers as a guide,the adhesive is very strong and you will only get one go at applying the new stickers-measure twice cut once is a saying that springs to mind
As to wet or dry application-I have always applied my stickers without water,just take the above precautions for alignment and it's straightforward.

Stickers are adhesive backed and supplied on "contact paper",remove the shiny contact paper and place the stickers (adhesive side down) onto the prepared surface,smooth all edges flat with your fingertips and ensure good adhesion,expel any trapped air bubbles with a credit card or similar whilst the protective paper is in place. Finally remove the protective paper and check all the edges for adhesion-you're done-stand back,admire and post up some pics here

Hope that helps.

Steve.

Time to revive this thread with a little shameless self promotion I think

All of these pics have been sent to me recently by happy customers-thanks for the feedback


"Geoff" discovered that my reflective chevrons for the 1200GSA metal panniers also fit the 1200 vario panniers





Geoff also had some of my 1200GS beak stickers in all white reflective vinyl for his Black 1200



During application........................



And after application;



My direct replacement 1200 Adventure tank stickers (seen here in White reflective vinyl) applied to a freshly painted Orange tank-to good effect.
Thanks to Rene for the pics




My "GS" letters (seen here in White reflective vinyl) applied to a freshly painted Orange 1200




Blue & White reflective Adventure tank stickers on a Grafitan 1150-I think this colour scheme works well.




And just so the 1100 owners don't feel too left out;




And let's not forget the "Dakar Dude",still available in standard and reflective vinyl,in 2 sizes (3 inch or 5 inch) and a range of colours,see my website for ordering details.

I'm looking for stickers of the Dakar Dude, but on a bit larger scale (e.g. 8-12") or in combo with something like the ADV rider sticker.

Is such a thing available? I want them for my Jeep as door stickers.

Hi, The Dakar Dude I can do something with and I'll get a price to you via a PM-any preference on colour?
Cannot help with the ADV rider sticker-sorry.

The Jeep is blue, so yellow or white would work great.

It seems I've started something. My usual finder's fee, right?
