I'm about to put my domed numbers on and am wondering what is the best way to safely clean the hull prior to install so they make a good bond. thanks

Well I figured the one solvent you may have is nail polish remover Jack.

:unsure: Well, I've been saving it for when you might make it out here skiing. Don't want that stuff rubbing off your toes on my vinyl. RTFM.gif Oh, that's right, you probably don't know how to ski. . . Baby.gif

Yup. Then rinse with water, dry, and stick away.

Yeah, my six-year-old should be running slalom by the time you make it out here. . .

Haha perfect. Well when Doug buys my Response LXI next year I figured out your house in right in the middle, so we'll probably be inviting ourselves over.

Maybe you'll get an invite this summer--some of the slalom guys on here may make it to NY.

Goo-Gone will remove the old sticky residue left over from the old numbers rather easily.

Yup. Then rinse with water, dry, and stick away.

Then rinse with soap and water. Tease.gif

If you have water spots, use vinegar and water to get rid of them. Then use rubbing alcohol to clean the area of any grease or oil, etc.

If you are worried about sticker placement or putting them on crooked, a quick light mist of Windex will give you the ability to make a temporary adjustment. If you use Windex let the stickers sit for a few seconds while the Windex evaporates.

I found they bond better if you heat them up after applying, also. I ran a heat gun and roller over mine just to be sure as they were so thick.........
