I have managed to remove some decals from a frame that I am having powder coated. The problem is, some of the decals are now nolonger sticky. The stickers all came off well so would be perfectly reusable if it wasn't for the lack of stickyness! I was thinking of using some double sided sticky tape, cut to shape to try & reapply them but was wondering about durability/waterproofness? Has anyone else encountered this problem before & if so how did you end up reapplying them? Your help/ideas will be much appreciated.
Ps the stickers that are too far gone have already been ordered from gilm.

I have used double-sided carpet tape to fix chainstay protectors with great success. I suppose it depends how complex your decals are?

Another idea is to find some spray adhesive. Make sure the solvent in them doesn't effect the sticker.

I think it works a bit better than double sided tape because you don't add any thickness to it.
