    I recently found my G1 Prime Trailer (now I just need to find that gun and he's complete!) but one of the stickers is loose in the top corner from way back in the day. The cure all (scotch tape) was in place until I removed it this afternoon but wanted to get some ideas on how I could restick that corner down without having to take it off and get a whole new sheet.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I find that this stuff called Tacky Glue works pretty well.

    It's available in most department/craft stores, in a gold bottle, and it works sort of like Elmer's glue but better. It's nontoxic, not permanent, isn't caustic or anything, and shouldn't damage the plastic or the sticker (In case you ever wanted to add reprolabels instead) and a very thin film will still hold the sticker down. Plus if you get any on top, usually you can just scrape the excess off with a fingernail, like elmer's...but I can't guarantee that. XD

    Just be careful with model glues or any CA glues (like Super or krazy glue) because they can permanently warp or disfigure the plastic...

    Heavy duty Pritt Stick (the one in the grey tube) I find works pretty well. I use it when ever I lift and reposition stickers.

    Thanks guys. the two mentioned, they won't damage the trailer then I imagine, right?

    Busta, what would you suggest, just to get a third opinion in here.
