Re: Finish issues
Some of the new ultra-thin decals come with instructions not to use anything but water for placement. I found out why the hard way. These decals also have a tendency to curl, so you have to slide them off of the backing sheet on or very close to the final location. Using Micro Set doesn’t give you time to place them before they soften enough to distort. It pays to read the directions on those decals. Use water only until they are properly placed and the water is wicked off.

I just use distilled water because of minerals in tap water, no soap nor Photoflo (left over from my darkroom days.) Pretreat the car with Micro Set where decal will be going, later with Micro Sol to get it to settle in.
