    What's the best way to remove a bubble from one of your exterior decals? I was thinking of poking a small hole to make the air escape, but the question is; do i need to inject water to re-activate adhesive?? help!

    Don't get bubbles in there in the first place.;)

    Poke it with a stick pin or needle...NOT a knife or razor. The knife slits it, the needle pokes it...less likely to tear or crack from a needle. Then, as you said, just force the air out. The adhesive is pressure sensitive, not water activated. Fluid simply makes the bubbles less likely to form from the get go.:)

    After you poke the hole, go over it with a bondo spreader to smooth it out.
