GTO Decals

I just had my 1970 GTO front painted and need to put on GTO decals on front fenders. Has anybody done this ? What is the proper way of putting them on ? Don't want to hurt the new paint and need to know the measurements where to put them on the fenders the picture in the middle is photoshopped Thanks for your help

Water bottle with mister and a squeegee are the ways to lay it on and be able to get it perfect IMHO

Spray bottle water and a couple drops of dish soap to the water, dish soap will keep slippery so you can do any adjustments to the decal where you want it , like the member before me mentioned mist the area where the decal is going, you squeegee it to set it in place, that’s how we have done it, once you squeegee it’s pretty much where it’s going to stay, so make sure you have it exactly where you want it, then lightly pat dry with clean towel or soft cloth. Sweet looking GTO. !!

When was it painted? Normally you would wait 30-90 days for the solvents to evaporate..
