It's been about a year ago that I bought the logo decals from Victoria
British that you just bought. I believe that all you need to do is peel
the backing off of the side that will attach to the car. With that off,
carefully place the decal in its place. I'd suggest working from the
middle out to the sides. I don't think I used anything but my fingers to
do the smoothing, and mine are laying very flat to the car (no air

Joe's comments about cleaning the car thoroughly should be followed, but I
don't believe you'll need any water to affix the decals.

Good luck!
