Need tips to apply the NKK windshield decal

We have ruined two of the NKK windshield member number decals trying to apply them.

Tips?

Hi RMD3819,
1. Clear windshield thoroughly.
2. Start with one corner/side of the decal.
3. Peel only enough that is necessary to smoothly place decal on the windshield.
4. Smooth as you go. Small squeegee works well.
5. Like towing a car, you can't backup very much. This is why I suggest you peel only enough to smooth onto windshield.

Hope this helps.

I bought an 8" x 11" piece of plexiglass for about $6 at Home Depot and applied the decal to that. Putting the decal on the windshield requires a ladder, which is a no no for us old guys. And the plexiglass is clean. You have to peel the backing off the decal slowly and carefully. Looks great when I put the plexiglass on the dash board on the Driver's side. Just slide it in next to the windshield so it can be seen from the ground in front of the coach.

Put a drop of Dawn in a small spray bottle, and add some water. Spray the area where you want the decal. Remove the backing paper, and lay it on the wet glass. Mpve it into the position you want it. Use a squeegie to squeeze out the water, but leave it alone. Any remaining dampness will dry out, and the adhesive will once again bond tightly to the glass.

Don't believe it? Find any self-adhesive decal just to try. You'll believe it.

I won't put a sticker or decal on my coach, so, I bought a nice chrome license plate frame with a clear plastic cover.

I stuck the decal on the plastic cover and put the frame over. Once you remove the paper from the front of the decal, you can see through the plastic piece to line it up perfectly before pressing down. (note: stick one edge first, and then flip over so you can work out any air bubbles as you stick the rest)

You lose a tad of the decal edge, but the number and the other stuff shows. Now when I go to an event, I just take it out of the cabinet and prop it up against the windshield.

Good luck.....I bet I’ve put 5 or 6 on with two different rigs and new windshields. I have yet to get one on complete and not torn or missing something

Look up a utube for installing decals with soap and water it’s a very simple procedure for professional looking results.
