First take a mixture of a ratio 3/4 99% Isoprophynol Alcohol and 1/4 warm water, use a facecloth and scrub area to prepare, eliminating any oils and dust that may hinder adhesion of decal.

Scrub, scrub and scrub, the cleaner the surface the better the decal will adhere to the cars interior panels.

Step 3: Using a Precut Design.

The design I have is for a 1991 Plymouth Laser RS, it is precut and can be ordered this way making it easier and more cost effective, plus the company I ordered mine from gives me doubles so if I mess up I have a spare decal to fix the problem

Step 4: Decal Is On!

The tricky part with a decal is to start from one corner and slowly press the decal down onto the surface trying to keep it completly even, which is a very hard task, some kits require you to cut the pieces and join them like a puzzel, but this often leaves a spot that tends to lift up, which makes it look sloppy.

Step 5: Heres an Example.

Step 8: The Worst Part!

This is the worst because there is so much to work around, you need to cut the decal a few times for places like this, but I have no photos of this annoying process.

Step 9: And Here It Is!

After 20 minutes and a lot of cutting and matching, im left with a pretty neat looking dash panel compared to the old black plastic.
