His decals are excellent. He has renewed the model car business by offering decals we never had on kits!

He makes great stuff. Yet, if you plan to clearcoat it, be careful. His decals don't like clearcoat, bur they stick enough naturally. Very nice !

Use Future (acrylic floor wax). Locks in the decal every time and looks great.

After numerous ill-fated attempts at replicating the upholstery for the 1976 Dart Sport "Spirit of '76" (I tried fine-line Sharpie , tedious painting , etc. , etc.) , I'm going to do what I should have in the first place : buy the decal set from Keith !

I never had a problem with clearcoating any of his decals. This T/A has several coats of Duplicolor laquer clear on it. I've done several cars with it.

You want to clearcoat them so that they will seal up and last a long time. If you have decals that screw up after putting on a clearcoat, then you need to wait longer to allow them to dry before putting it on.

Not to start a great debate but... If building a factory stock muscle car I never clear over the decals! The 1:1s were never done that way and to me it ruins the look of the finished car.

maybe so but as with any ALPS printed decals , Keiths are a mat finish and easily damaged.

Even if you only clear them before cutting and using then it's good to have them protected from handling mishaps.

Yes, this will make them glossier but very few factory decals were dead flat like ALPS decals come as printed anyway.
