Ok im hoping someone can lead me into a direction now. I managed to get the car into primer then base coat gloss white so I could get the decals on. Well thats when things went south. I cut the stripes back as to not have any decaled edges that werent red just due to some discoloration once placed on the pure white body. the problem was when i applied the ramchargers decals to the sides as usual i use a setting solution. Things went down well with no problems. Added some solvaset to the decal and didnt seem to really permeate or soften the decal but i figures i give it some time. I came back 45 min later and around the lettering i had wrinkles that were quite noticable and despite any application of heat or further applications as well as burnishing the decals i could not "iron" them out. Its as if the paint underneath shrunk but really wasnt the paint. Well 2 hrs later and the body was stripped and in primer but have come to a delema that there is no decals aftermarket for this bodystyle. Ive thought of some ideas but really havent been able to come up with something that would work so im asking if anyone has any advise on what to do. Ive been thru the slixx decals but everything seems move oversized for this car.
