tank/shroud decals?

I'm putting new tank and shroud decals on my bike. This is my first time removing old and putting on new. I've read to drain the tank of gas so it doesn't effect the adhesive.....I did this. Beyond that, is there any prep work I should be aware of?

I'd appreciate any tips you guys use before I "commit" to putting on the new stuff.

Thanks in advance.

if it is a CR with an alloy frame there is no need to drain the gas. and if it isnt... then yes drain the gas. also, when you finally go to stick the graphics on.. use a sponge and wipe some diluted soapy water over the plastic. only use a little detergent. this way you can slide the decal around a bit and you can afford to make a mistake.. then you just let the water evaporate and you should have a nice, plush set of decals.
