    Default Large external sticker

    Hi all,
    Received my vectra c.com sticker the other day. I'm just wondering how you put yours on? If I pull away the white backing then put it on the window, will the lettering stay on the window when I pull the other bit off? I'm making myself sound stupid with such a silly question, but as you all know, don't want to get anything wrong when it comes to the car
    Cheers,
    George

    ensure the surface is perfectly clean and then you should "offer up" the sticker to the vehicle so that it reads correctly and then remove the backing from the side closest to the vehicle

    then CAREFULLY place the sticker onto the surface you want to stick it to and then rub over the backing repeatedly to "activate the glue and help it to bond - rub it all over and then use a cloth to ensure you have pushed it all onto the surface - then SLOWLY from a corner start to remove the backing sheet if at any stage any of the decal starts to lift - replace the cover and rub repeatedly again for about another 30 seconds.. then try again.. keep going until all the backing is removed -then stand back..... grin from ear to ear and take a photo and pop it up

    Here we are then. Once it was on, I did exactly as you told me to do - .

    It went a bit wrong at the start and I got a little pee'd off with myself, but after calming down, it went on quite easily. Unfortunately though, it looks slightly wonky . Oh well, still happy with it

    A good tip is to wet the car with water/car shampoo mix (as you would when washing).
    This way, the stickers can slide around easy until you get the in the correct position, and as the water/shampoo dries, the sticker sticks to the car as normal.

    Is saves all the hassle of trying to peel it back off if you get it slightly wonky.
