I understand completely how you feel Ray , as I've felt the same way for more than a year now . Can't really point to one thing that has caused it but many of the same things you have mentioned have slowed my building down to almost nothing . I still like looking and I still buy kits , but when it comes time to sit down and build something the passion just isn't there anymore . Very hard to explain to somebody who hasn't been there . Good luck to you . . . see you around !
Insert a #11 blade between the sticker and the paper , then slide the blade around the circumference to release it from the paper . With the sticker still attached to the tip of the blade center it over your tire and very lightly press it in one spot only , being careful not to distort the shape . If it's not centered you can carefully lift the sticker back off of the tire and try again . Removing the sticker is not quite as easy as it sounds so hopefully you won't have to do it more than once .When it looks good press the entire sticker down and it's permanent .
