Mrs. H. home is located in Hollywood, California. Today, the job was to install a family sticker on the back window of her automobile.

This post shows the eight steps to install white family stickers on a SUV back window.

Step 1: Decide where the sticker will be placed. Above fig.1 above shows the back window.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the family sticker on the white rectangular form. Now where to put the new sticker. Looks like the sticker on the left will need to be removed.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows that the sticker was going to be removed using a flat paint scraper. The sticker was so old it took a few tries to get the plastic off the glass.

Step 4: Fig.4 and fig.5 shows the glass is cleaned of any particles left over from the last decal. Plus the glass needs to be cleaned to apply the decal.
