I am having the cabinet refinished on my Zenith 7-S-363- should the band decals go on before or after the cabinet is resprayed? Thanks Jackson

Normally you would apply your decals just before the last coat of lacquer. I do about 3 coats total, so after the first 2 coats apply decals, then spray the final coat.

I’ve only done a few, but I go 1 coat of lacquer. Hit it with 300 paper. Decal. Then 2 coats on top. I’ve found the decals move around easier with 1 coat under. I think we will all agree the decal can go on at anytime, but at least 1 coat on top to protect it.

I always spray mist coats over the decal at first: some break up if the coat is too heavy. If you have spares try a couple on a piece of scrap.

Also make sure to give the decals time to dry out.
