Making Lettering Stick for Good

Does anyone have any idea how to make the Airstream lettering stick for good? I have a 2002 25Ft Classic and the previous owner purchased and installed all the "Airstream" chrome lettering about a year ago from the factory. They are already curling up! Any ideas?

the problem with the red letters is that they do stick for good.

Put clear fingernail polish around the perimeter to seal the edges. The edges do have to be stuck down first though.

Clean the paint so that it's chemically clean.

Let that metal area be exposed to the sun, so tnat the metal is "HOT", not warm, but hot.

Then, apply the decals.
