Tbh when I had mine I just made sure the old badges were clean and dry. Stick it straight on.

Maybe a good idea to warm the sticker and the old badge as its cold out.

I used the wife's hair dryer to heat the badges then stick on. Works very well.
I've done the wheel centre caps and front and rear badges.

Depends as I heated my wheel centres and they still peeled off even though they looked properly stuck when I fitted them

do they overlay the hole standard badge?
They're called Gel Overlays for a reason


They line up perfectly, just make sure you get heat in them as above. I was lucky, it was boiling hot and sunny outside when I did mine, so I just used the roof of my mates black car

I ordered the brake caliper stickers and was a little disappointed with how small they are and haven't fitted them as I think they would just look silly on such a big front caliper, I'm going to stick those on the rear calipers and Dave is making me up a custom set that are double the size pretty much for the front calipers.

All will be revealed when I fit them

Dave must love me as pretty much all my Gels have been custom colours
