    I would get replacements from the dealer - mine had a form # on them and I ordered replacements a year or two ago - they were really inexpensive.

    I've had this problem many times on the older muscle cars. Aftermarket repops all the neat little decals to make the restoration complete. But they start to peel up after a few years.

    I found that any type of liquid glue would bleed through the decal and ruin it, making another call for new decals necessary. Later I got the idea to try some of my sons pasty elmers type glue.
    I put a little on my finger and applied it. Being paste it didn't bleed through and has seemed to hold the decals down going on 3 years now.

    There's a thought. Any of the decals stuck to plastic with the paste?

    Well I've only had to do this on the older cars,,,where it seems all the decals are on steel parts. But I don't see why the stick glue wouldn't work with decals on plastic as well. I'd personally give it a shot. Like I said it's worked well for me on the old stuff, and it's not messy at all.
