Hey guys, All of my stickers came off my plastics the first time I washed my car this year. I know when you paint plastics, you are supposed to use a mold release agent to get the paint to stick. Should I have done this with my decals also???

Was the plastic freshly painted. You should always wait a week before applying stickers to fresh paint. Were these custom stickers from a shop or decals that came with parts?

If its unpainted plastic , try to wipe it with rubbing alcohol before applying the stickers . We prep our bumpers at work like this before we apply adhesion promoter pryor to the paint . Really gives the plastic alot of grip .
