Bicycle sticker metal material for folding bicycle Brompton frame decoration
Good quality sticker metal, bit fiddly to get it on until you've done an It's a shame that the other, earlier sticker metal isn't also available as this one is quite small in comparison. It's also different on each side, unlike the earlier bikes which just said 'Brompton' on both sides. I line it up with the little hole in the frame where the seat post slots in and start to peel back the backing, just half a centimeter at this point.
Keeping the sticker metal as close to the frame as I can I work forwards along the centerline of the bike, pulling the backing off under the sticker metal as I go, pressing lightly along the centerline, but leaving the corners unstuck. When I reach the front, the backing is pulled away completely and the sticker is hopefully lying along the centerline. If it's way out you can still lift it up at this stage and reposition it.
The main thing is to avoid touching the sticky back and getting your fingerprints on it. Now press the centerline down firmly and slowly work outwards on each side to the edges, pressing down firmly as you go to eliminate bubbles or creases. If bubbles do appear you can prick them with a pin and press them out, but normally they aren't a problem. Finish by pressing down the corners, rubbing away from the sticker metal.
