Default Windex on internal masks and internal graphics??

Have been using Windex on decals for some time to allow slight movement before total dry.
Does the same technique work well for internal graphics and window masks?
Thanks,

The last one I did I just used plain water, it still left plenty of time to slide around some. I think the windex would be a little harsh since it contains some alcohol. Only other thing around the house I would use would be a very small amount of baby shampoo.

You don't want to use anything that will leave a residue on the inside of the shell. Use water. If you feel you still need more time, try a 50/50 mix of water and windex. Let the decal dry thouroghly, then clean the inside of the body again before applying paint.

I've seen decals applied using the "float method" using household fly spray.
A sign writer used it to apply the vinyl rego sticker to a boat hull.
That rego sticker has lasted the last 6 years with no problems.
Still in the same spot with no lifting at the edges. It has faded a little though.
I thought most sign writers used a mix of water and a couple drops of
dishwashing liquid into a spray/squirt bottle. That's what I 've always used.
