Our Star Trek Pro suffered a crippling blow to the warp ramp, and we finally have a new one to replace it. The problem is: the new ramp is naked. So I have to try and transfer the decal over. Does anyone know the adhesive Stern uses for ramp decals? Or how to get them to stick properly while looking pretty? Seems like every spray-on glue I know leaves a murky residue behind.

I know Marco sells the decal, but if it's something cheap and easy to use, why throw out a perfectly good one?

This is the stuff you want:

3M 467MP Adhesive If you buy a whole roll its a little spendy but I have found tons of uses for it.
Clean off all the old adhesive off the sticker and ramp and put new adhesive back on. Its pretty slick actually.

Pinrestore sells it by the yard (go way down the list to find it):

Note if the tape is old or got too warm the adhesive doesnt release off the backing like it should.

It "is" a thermal adhesive up to 300 degrees. I use it for heatsinks, case badges and logo's and decals.

Fresh tape works perfectly.
