Would this mean I would be repainting panels?  Or, at the very least, prepping them for clear coat?

Interesting. Any idea If the decal mounting fluid is safe for the paint?

I have used this to make a decal for the back of my helmet - showing emergency contact info, blood group etc.

As I mentioned, design and print you decal, then fix the ink from smudges, damage etc by applying 2 light coats of clear coat acrylic.

You then soak the decal in water to make it slide off of the backing paper.

I cut the decal about 1/16" bigger all round. Then apply the decal where you want it.

For a bike panel, a through degreasing to remove polish etc would be advised.

Leave the decal to dry, then I masked off an area, again about 1/16" bigger than the final decal size, and applied 2 very light coats of acrylic top coat.

Leave the top coat to dry for a day and then flat the edges with a wet sponge or similar - nothing abrasive, you just want to remove the masked edge of the top coat to blend it into the panel surface.

I hope this helps....

For people in the US - try Michaels Craft Stores for the decal paper... it is available in White and Clear.

You had my interest until you suggested spraying clear acrylic on the bike itself.  I'd be concerned with 1) possibility of a run, or 2) possibility of contamination like a bug landing on the wet paint or 3) the clear acrylic either not blending in or eventually yellowing.  So thanks for the interesting suggestion but I think I will pass.

Hi!  New to the forum, and don’t get my bike until April (after winter).

I did a search but came up empty;  I want to look for similar “Triumph” stickers to place under the “Trophy SE” badge, but cannot find the length anywhere of those badges.  Can anyone measure and let me know?   Or, the sticker measurements at the start of this post?

Thanks!!

Happy to oblige - this should help : ( Sizes are in Centimetres ! )



Search on eBay ( etc ) for "Triumph Stickers) or "Triumph Decals"
and you should be able to find what you're looking for  :028:

Cheers  :821:
