    Nope. Not like the white Corvette and Fair Lady decals. Here's what I would do it that were mine, but I'm crazy. I'd carefully clean the decals and the paint directly around the decals and then put a piss coat of clear lacquer over them. Then soak the frame.

    I know the decals look different, but I am hoping the material might be the same?

    It appears that the gold fades out and the red is fairly stable on these decals, so I'd assume they are not quite the same as the solid white decals.

    Exactly,as mentioned before,I have a feeling the gold is actually screened over the red decal,making it as fragile as stingray guard screening..
