Dwayne they mean Rubbing Alcohol, not Tequila. Thats what I use when ever I stick anything on!
I have done lots so far this year, and is always the Alcohol because it evaporates.

Is it a thin vinyl decal or a foam padded one?
I think the foam padded ones hold up better but might be harder to clean the
dirt away if it builds up around it.

They are chrome/metal lettrers, see picture earlyer in this post.
Everyone says they are easy to install.
Will post pictures when done.

I have a set of the same..stainless/high polish for the "Corvette" across the back but scared to attempt to put them on in case I screw up. I will be watching for how you did.

Installed mine 2 weeks ago and the ends are starting to pop out...

I was always looking to install the lettering at the rear end but was scared of it peeling off.

as long as u clean the area nice they will stick for along time i had all the letters on my Trans Am and had them on for 3 summers they align up fine cuz the bumper is indented so the letters just fall into place and just very gently tac them on and stand back to see if there straight and if not just lighty pull them back off since u just barely stuck them on and if there straight well push em on lol good luck
