W: Lego 6990 Monorail! :)
Join Date: May 2007
I wash the vehicle thoroughly with soap and water. I dry off what I can with a clean towel, then let it air dry for a while (be careful if there are metal parts).
I use an X-acto and ruler whenever I can, to get that straight factory look. I only use scissors when I have to (ie: round pieces). Do NOT use an old blade, and be gentle - the stickers are a bit fragile and I've had many rip when I've cut them because I've used an old blade, or a larger utility type knife.
I touch them as little as possible, and use tweezers whenever I can.
Hope that helps!

I'm a little cumbersome with an exacto knife ,i might use a pair of sharp scissors instead will this effect the quality at all ?
I'm going to wash all of the vehicles and use goo-gone or some cooking oil to get rid of stickiness left behind of the old stickers ,does anyone know where i can find references to put the stickers on the vehicles ,i don't have any of the blueprints ?

yojoe.com has blueprints in their vehicle archive. And no; cutting with a pair of scissors won't affect the quality at all. That's how I do it.
