    Downtube Decal Kit Placement

    Anybody have some good tips on how and where to put a new set of “Down-tube Decals” on a XXL Sultan? I know that this might seem like a “lamer” question but is there a good place to line the stickers up vertical and horizontal? And what is the best way to apply them? Thanks for your time and sorry if this has already been covered before.
    Later E

    I figured out that part of the U in Turner pointed directly to the lower bottle cage bolt on the RFX on the website picture for the medium frame. It also looked like the long line on the T ran just ouside the edge of a bottle cage. So I went for it and it came out correct position wise but I ended up with a lot of bubbles. Probably better to do it on a hot day than a cold evening. I'm going to strip the decals off and try again with a new set so any suggestions are appreciated regarding bubbles.

    like ya say, a warm room is better and yer line up sounds good. i cut the sticker close to the logo with a good blade and a straight edge, normally on the flattest edges like the top and left side of a turner logo, mock it up and use masking tape to mark 2 top and 1 side point. lay it down top to bottom and apply in a very shallow angle with single stroaks usein a squeegee with a mostly stiff yet semi flexable material without rough edges. a credit card works in a pinch. i hear soapy water sprayed on the frame surface before the sticker is applied helps but im old school and go dry. a small pin prick in the center of a small bubble allows yer squeegee to help make it flat again if ya go edge to center.

    by the way, im not a pro sticker guy but this has worked for a long time with good results. im sure theres a experts way that goes a step better.
    No, I'm NOT back!
