    So I have some small vinyl decals I want to put on my truck. What should I do to prep the surface? I know isophophyl alcohol on glass, but what about the fender?

    My Inferno DCSB OR is badgeless and sticker free at the moment. I’ve been debating a small windows sticker or two, and have considered similar flag placement. Where did you get yours?
