    Newbie with decal question
    Hello All,

    My name is Jimmy. I am not a modeler although in my youth I built quite a few. I'm 55 years old. I built airplanes, cars, and the series with the Mummy, Dracula, Frankenstein etc. I think they all met destruction via firecrackers or fire. Kids! These days I have an old farmhouse in the Maryland suburbs and a 1967 Camaro RS/SS convertible 4 speed 350 to keep me busy as well as my wife and eleven year old son. Now to my question. I have an old Fender Telecaster waterslide decal which I wish to apply to a tele headstock. I got it from a guitar shop owner who told me to shoot it with lacquer before application to prevent it from falling apart. The decal looks fine. Is there a technique you guys use for applying old decals? Thanks in advance for any replies and have a Happy Thanksgiving!! Jimmy
