WBCII numbers

We have our numbers now but are wondering what is the best way to apply them. Was there once a link on the forum page? Please and thank you

Take a level and draw a pencil line on the trailer - very lightly where you want the letters. Then using the Airstream logo center your numbers using masking tape. Then I put a small dot again in pencil below each number so I know where they go and are centered.

Wet the area and wet the number with soapy water. I've found you can almost NOT sue too much water. I separate the backing from each number while I apply the number from top to bottom, I do not separate all at once. Then I use a plastic putty knife or credit card to lightly smooth out the air bubbles before it drives. If wet enough this is no problem and you can actually slide the numbers around a bit while they are all in place and wet.

I've done three in the last four years.

I like Bud's approach.. I had a concern about the pencil method ( I have a heavy writing hand)... So, I used some 'blue' painters tape to mark the underside of a level.. one piece each end.. that will provide a 'level' mark.. now, start the tape on one of the tape pieces and stretch across to the other... semi-instant straight line..
you can now mark the blue tape where you want your letters to align..

Apply as directed.

Oh, I measured center based on the edges of the front upper clearance light housings.
Peace and Blessings..
