Decal adhesive

I have a few letters that are lifting at the corner. I would prefer to try and re adhere these down as they also have vinyl wrap on them so not way to replace one letter. Suggestions on a safe adhesive for the gel coat?

Noooo... thats a permanent adhesive.. which decals do you have?

You need to clean any crud on decal, as best you can. Get any 3m spray on adhesive.. those adhesives easily come off with acetone

I also had no idea that 3M Fastcure is permanent.

nope 4200 is good stuff and removable. you are thinking of 5200 which is a nightmare if used in the wrong situations. I also would recommend 4200 good stuff, the only issue might be that it is to thick but if you used a credit card like a squeegee or something to get a similar result it probably would work well.

Ok, that's a relief. My younger brother intends to use that for the decal after we finished installing the suspension from 4Wheelonline onto the truck.
