 So my decals arrived today, along with a Dust Source book (looks pretty good at first glance, my son will appreciate the numbers such as speed, weight, etc).

How do I use the decals, is there any particular advice for a first time painter? Any techniques/products I should order to help them transfer and stick well?

Thank you.

 google "how to apply waterslide decals" and you'll find tons of guides but the jist of it is to cut out the decal you want then soak it in water to loosen it.

They will stick well, just amake sure you dab with tissue to seat the transfer and remove water.  This is where a spary of Purity seal may help, it will lock in the transfer and remove the shine it may leave.
