Tough to get a hold of hem (them). Trying to get instructions on fitting the color sheet for the head tube around the lugs. Anyone done this?

Hi Mtree,

Here is the way the color sheet mounts to the head tube.
Get a piece of notebook paper, cut it over size to the head tube area you're wanting to fill. Center the paper and tape (magic or masking) the paper to the tube.
Use a pencil to carefully trace around the area to be decaled. Cut out the paper to shape. Fit and trim the paper template making sure the shape fits the tube. Once you have the paper template ready, you can use it on the vinyl sheet. Carefully place the paper template onto the vinyl and trace around it. Using scissors cut out the vinyl to shape. Mount it using the soapy water solution, making sure the tube and adhesive side of the decal is wet. Mount the decal onto the tube moving it into the final position. For smaller areas use a cut down plastic card (mini squeegee). Let it set up for a minute or two and then carefully squeegee out the water, going from the middle outward toward the edges.

JR.

Thank you.

Tomorrow we finish up this project and take the bike for a spin.

Everything else for this '83 Trek 850 went on perfectly - looks better than new.
