    hi m8

    wohoo your car looks the same as mine,you copying me at all

    lol only kidding m8

    fitting of door decals can be tricky,when you start then you have to make
    sure its level with the bottom of the doors but make sure you start the
    actual lettering about 10mm from the bottom of the door then start peeling
    the backing a bit at a time then stick and position the lettering and make
    sure you use a detailing spray and keep it wet all the time as you peel away
    the backing but also you have to peel the front aswell as you go along not
    forgetting to use some kind of plastic card to smooth out the air bubbles as
    you go along,this operation is really a 2 person job as 1 person can control
    the backing and the front as you peel it and the other person can
    consentrate in making sure the decal comes off the backings properly and
    also can keep it wet all the time,the more its wet the easier it is so you can
    manover it easily go along the whole decal till its all stuck onto the door and
    leaving it overlap were the joins between the doors,wipe and leave for a
    while before you cut it were the joins are on the doors,making sure you dont
    forget that its overlapping the doors just incase you open the doors
    accidently then will cause the decal to stretch and break like i did in
    germany,also as you go along makeing sure the air bubbles are smoothed out
    but dont press too hard as it tear,its a very delacate procedure and i
    struggled on me own just replacing a damaged 1 about a 3 weks ago
    that i damaged back in germany.

    as with the door handles and door mirrors if you drop me a pm
    then i`ll price them up for you.


    hope this is of any help for you
