Hi Jim, a couple of things that may be of help. 1) make sure its nice and warm/hot when you do the decals, they will flex and move/conform much easier. 2) those decals will also be way easier to work and apply once you peel off the backing revealing the adhesive side of the decal. Some decals if they have a CLEAR plastic "top" protective layer (that you peel off after) make them harder to apply as they are stiffer , where as some decals have a "release tape" on top thats more like sticky paper, those are usually easier to work. Careful warming of the decal with a hair dryer will make them a bit more workable, but I dont recommend doing tat until your ready to actually apply them.
