Try either Micro Sol or Micro Set which should be available from your local, well-stocked LHS.  Those should solve your problems.

One of the best things to get dcals to stick is Future. To get them to conform use a hot damp cloth pressed over the decal it wil comform instantly,use hot damp Q-Tip for smaller areas. I could not have decalled this JACCS Accord without this technique. All decal solvents are too strong for Tamiya's decals. This car was painted white all else is decal.
