    Anyone put on a Decal on their truck? If so what did you use to clean down the area of wax and stuff, also any tips to help it stick better??

    I used a small rubber squeegee to apply mine. Mist the area with water to make positioning easier. When you have it where you want it use the squeegee to remove the air bubbles. Push the bubbles to the closest edge of the decal

    I didn't use anything special. Cleaned left over glue from old decals with "goo gone". Then used windex to get the "goo gone" residue off. I used 1 small drop of liquid dish detergent in the water. Made it a little slicker and move the sticker easier. With the soap, it takes a little longer to dry. Any tiny bubbles will evaporate. Had mine for 2 months and 3 carwashes. Still looking great. Hope this helps. And remember, take your time.
