Can this be fixed?

I was thinking of degreasing sticker & surface then whacking some araldite clear on them and sticky taping over the top to keep 'em flat. Remove tape once dry..

Is there a better way or should I move on? :lol:

Cheers

That´s the way to go. Grab some Q-tips, soapy water and isopropyl alcohol to clean and degrease the surfaces. Then use cyanacrylate glue to stick them back, be careful with the amount of glue used, less is often more in terms of a clean job. :)

Wouldn't decals off Gil_M be an option?

I hope to do some business with him in the near future on my Explosif. Hoping he has the O-Beam seat post on file.

i have used UHU with some success and some sepcatucualr faillue - that either melted the plsticky stokcer or help remove the printed colours from it.

I used double sided tape to stick a tange infinity decal back down. Worked a treat.
