Spotted a HAZ sticker on a Jeep Cherokee(?), newer and gray, where I live at the "levels" at 2PM today. It also had a AZT trail sticker, and some other one next to it. Just wondering who that might be. A visitor would be interesting, but it would be a hoot to me if another HAZer lived where I do.

I still think mine looks best particularly with a layer of muddy ice.

Had to make a new HAZ decal magnet. My last one disappeared!

And now I’m out of spare decals. Not sure why it uploaded sideways. Oh well.

Mine doesn't look worth a crap. The letters pulled apart when I pulled the backing off. If you want to throw money away, it looks to me like buying one of these decals is a good way to do it.

@DixieFlyer That happened to me on my first one years ago, but I just told Joe about it and he sent me a new one ;)

Peeled several about an hour ago. The batch is too old. The overlay mask isn't easily removable without destroying the decal. Refunded all recipients for the past couple months and took down the page. Odin asked a couple weeks ago about the procedure. Responded, didn't think much of it as occasionally some have trouble. I know the procedure and didn't get a successful peel until the fourth one.

Good to know! I was going to offer @DixieFlyer my spare HAZ decal from your original HAZ batch from Aug-Sept'09 but maybe not a good idea :)

Suggest you contact Joe, I have 2, perhaps 10 years ago, and both are still going strong. It may be an issue with the shelf life of the things.

I’m not sure which batches mine were from as I’ve gotten free ones and ordered a batch, but Yertle’s was fine and I just put one on my new commuter a couple months ago, my truck had one and my wife’s former vehicle. Some of those sat in my drawer for years and never had a problem on 4 different vehicles.

knew* would be more accurate
The envelope is sealed with a URL for instructions, also on the old shop page. Read the instructions. Worked flawless two in a row :lol:
* Guessing, I highlighted step #2 which has a critical element

Me neither. Still have some in the back seat pocket to share whenever I encounter somebody who wants one. Probably precedes Hank's '09 batch. Last one I applied was less than a year ago. Still perfect. :DANCE:

I just used my last decal recently. It was one I’ve had for at least a few years. The last ‘A’ in Arizona did try to peel up incorrectly, but I was able to get it fixed without ruining the decal. Not sure if that was from age, or if I accidentally changed the angle of the peel since I was at the end of the decal.

@joebartels
I would say that all four steps are critical for success.https://hikearizona.com/images/decal_instructions.jpg No problems with any of the free or purchased ones that I've applied.

@DixieFlyer
I got it to work this time. I used a rolling pin on it, and squeegeed the heck out of it.

Note to self: next time get a white one, not a black one, to put on a tinted window
