I believe that some of the newer numbers are not to be soaked in water just pealed from the backing. I may be wrong but I do think that the last time I used them I had both kinds in the envelope.

Keep the shiny side up.

Well, if that were the case in our situation it would have been helpful if the sender noted which were which type (water vs standard adhesive). All we got was a standard prinout with water decal instructions and our name filled in the blank.

Oh well, no biggie... We'll have our numbers, just a little later than we expected. This will give us a chance to put our Air Forums #s on it as well. We'll just do it one big shebang...

When I got my WBCCI #'s I was kinda suprised that it did not have taping on top of it.All you need is some kind of tape with a very light tack.You could also go to a sign shop and ask them for a bit of it to use.I am pretty sure they would sell some of it or have bit of scraps laying around.
It just cant get any better than that.

I had a disaster putting on my numbers, here in the desert stuff dies in seconds, so I used the soap to position them, got em on OK, then a guest of wind came and blew the 5 to the next county..
Retrieved it, sand and all..and it is on a bit crooked

I first put my numbers on signage "cling film" using the soapy water system on the dining room table. When dry, I cut the film to match the rough shape of the numbers. Then, using the same soap solution, slipped them onto the aluminum, avoiding the rivets and getting the spacing dialed in. The reason for this is that you can remove/reapply them easily when it's time to repolish. (The added benefit is that if the WBCCI ticks you off, you can denumber your rig.)

BaldEagle, Use the soapy water. Then use a squeegee to press any excess water out. A pencil line is all you nee to line them up at the bottom, or you can use masking tape as a line. We have use the process for years when putting decals on the side of our work trucks. Having a sing shop make the numbers up for you on one decal transfer is the most accurate way they will line up and not be tilted, but will cost 50 bucks or so.

I have received my WBCCI membership numbers and know how to line them up but was wandering if there are any spacing requirements.

Welcome to the forums, and welcome to the WBCCI!

No spacing requirements, just space them so they look nice. If you want you can temporarily tack them in place with masking tape and stand back to view them from a distance to judge the appearance.

Just put mine on. They are peel and stick now. I thought they looked best 1 3/4" above the Airstream logo, and 1 3/4" between them. Centered. Used masking tape horizontal along the bottom, and then a piece of masking tape vertical alongside each number as I put them up as a guide. Stick first at the bottom and then press each number upward with your fingers being sure there are no air bubbles.
