First you find a picture of the decal you want. I needed an airlift for a 1960 Chevy so I chose this picture.



I then scanned it with my magic wand which works great on photos in books.



I then download the picture into my computer and import it to my Adobe photodeluxe program



The following pictures show how I used the various tools such as orientation, color fill ,line and circle tools to clean up the image.











You then size the decal to fit the model on a body guage which is the same size as the model and then paste the decal to the decal sheet. You print out the sheet, seal it with testors 1261 gloss clear and you are ready to cut out the decals and place them on the model.
