Muscle car sticker
Precise sticking pays off

Spraying is a craft, and so is labeling. An incorrectly placed sticker can ruin the line of the entire car. There are many sticker - or 'decal' providers. They deliver 'transfers', which are in fact nothing more than a picture in layers of lacquer, cut texts and logos, stickers and images printed on foil. Note that there are 'left' and 'right' images. That goes for Honda wings and Ford Mustangs. Such a horse on the left screen, trotting to the nose, suggesting speed and dynamism, walks on the other side of the car to the rear wheel. Also pay attention in advance where the picture or text should be placed. Examine old leaflets, taking into account the orientation of the image in relation to the body line and the seams between the panels. Take a few steps back to see what the picture is like. Stay an inch or two away from door seams or body arches. Always wet the place where the sticker will be with water that contains a few drops of washing-up liquid. The sticker floats on it and can thus be optimally positioned. Remove air pockets from the center with a soft spatula. Only remove the top cover film after at least one day. Then the sticker has had time to adhere
