only check Indycals



Welcome to the new look of Indycals.net. While the look of the website is different, the feel should be familiar as the structure of the old site is pretty much the same. The original website was designed nearly 10 years ago, and as you can imagine a lot has changed since then, including our knowledge of web design and coding. Two new features we have added are a search window and a FAQ page - I hope you will find these useful and informative.

... and since the open wheel split is over, so is ours - CART 'split era' decals are now in with 'other Indy cars'.

I will also use this left sidebar as a callout block for thoughts or comments that pertain to a given page.

How to use Indycals Decals

Indycals are water transferable decals and work just like any other water transfer decals you would get with a model kit.  One difference from kit decals is that the carrier film is not fit to each marking on the sheet - you need to carefully trim the decals as close to the printing as possible.

Decals are tailored for each car they are designed to replicate and the color background they go on. Ie, a decal desinged to go on a white background probably won't work on a colored background.

Our decals can be clearcoated, but you must NOT use enamel based clear coat - this will destroy any white printing on the sheet (and all of our sheets have some white on them). We have tested our decals with Testors Model Master Lacquer and Tamiya TS13 clear lacquer. As lacquers and other non-water based clear coats tend to be harsh, we recommend using setting solutions on the decals before clearcoating (we recommend Solvaset)- this will help bond the decal to the paint and reduce the chances of wrinkling. Acrylic water based clear coats should be safe. We have also tested Johnson's (Future) Floor Wax with no problems. Regardless of what you are using, it's always best to test first.

To apply decals carefully trim with a sharp exacto knife. Dip in water (warm water works quicker) for a few seconds. Decal will slide off – position on car. We do recommend setting solutions, particularly Solvaset, especially if you plan to clearcoat.

*** Update April 3rd 2017 *** we have recently switched printing technology and we are still in a bit of a learning phase with the new printer and new paper necessary to work with the printer. If you are having ANY issues, please let us know as soon as possible so we can sort them out.
