Default need tips on removal and replacement of decals

Hi Guys
I have removed my star decals on my wing by cutting them out . I had to get to the servo wires in the wing as them would not just pull through the holes. Bad servos. Now I am planing on installing new monokote over the
holes and gluing or some how attaching and reusing the decal. The decal now has the old monokote attached to it. What is best to use to attach a used decal as not to get wrinkles and or bubbles or to much heat
Thanks for any tips David

Ordering new might be the easiest as suggested above. If you really want to save them. Recover the opening to the first structure available. In other words don't try and patch a hole in the center. Cut back the covering to a rib or spare and patch that area. Then I would lay the star back down with the old covering on the back of it with trim solvent.
