anybody in Texas having an issue with validation decals peeling off the deck??? Or any other states? I lost one this past weekend. I ran into a couple about a month ago with new Sparks, and the guy warned me that his wife had lost both.

I'm guessing the adhesive used on the Texas decals do not adhere very well to the plastic deck.

I will be picking up replacements this week, but am looking for ideas to help achieve a better bond. I cleaned it very well when I first applied them back in early July.

**So far the registration numbers seem to be fine (they are the Sea Doo registration kit)

The seadoo registration kit comes with blank sticker stock. I used this to make some squares and stuck them to the hull, and the reg stickers to the sticker stock. Worked great.

Good idea. I found the blanks. I'll give that a try.

Same for Maryland, they just slide off. So I cut out a square from the blank stock and it sticks great now.

The dealer warned me that they would not stick, and a quick check showed they would fall off.

I've found that lightly spraying rubbing alcohol or even crab cleaner(use at your own risk) on to a paper towel and cleaning surface before placing the numbers on works very well. I've been told you need something to get the mold release off so that it can stick. I used brake cleaner which is like carb cleaner to clean the sides before placing my custom registration stickers on and so far they've been holding for months. Just be careful with harsh chemicals on the plastic.

Spary the sticker and where you want it with contact adhesive then let it tack off before mating the surfaces. Works really well when done rite.
