Now we are seeing more fizzies out and about you come across the wonky decal now and again. For the less experienced on the board (me included) once you've sprayed your tank and tinware the next step is to put the stickers on.

Here's a few useful tips to help you or your paint sprayer:

1) Always take photos before you strip your tinware

2) Measure the exact position of those decals

3) If your tin ware is stripped already then look on this site for reference photos

4) When applying decals a very fine mist of water helps a lot

5) For your side panels make sure you get the angle right. Put the panel on the bike !!!

6) For the pinstripe look at the tank - you will see where the decal should end on the top!


7) GOOD LUCK !

Hi Andy,

Perhaps a section with some reference photographs might help, I am quite happy to take some of my Yellow Dx (Speedblock)

Regards

WD

I'll be doing mine soon so any reference photos would be appreciated, I guess the best would be a set of photos from original tinware ? Any useful measurements could also be included.

Is it just me or do some of those original side panel ones look a bit squiffy? <_<
