Decals folding on edges

I found that taking a sponge with the tuft pad on the backside works great for getting rid of the rolling decal edges.
Use it dry and just lightly sand the decal edging. It will be a little dusty, but worth it. After you have taken off the curled edging, lightly sand the main field to look uniform.
Most if the dark coloring will come off due to oxidizing with age and exposure.
This gives a better appearance to the decals. It is not perfect, but it looks cleaner.

That is a good, if temporary, solution for the curled edges. Seems once they start there is no stopping it.

I replaced my front and rear decals on my 2007 after about 5 years. Sides looked good for a long time afterward but started curling after about 11-12 years. Sold it at 14 years.

I purchased my graphics from db_graphix on Ebay. They have a lot of Montana graphics including the Montana decal in your picture.
