    Default Attaching Micro/Trains Flatcar Weathered Decks

    Recently came across Micro/trains Flatcar Weathered Decks at my LHS. At first I thought they were paper stickers but upon closer exam they are actually wooden without any adhesive. Has anyone tried them and if so, how did you attack the deck to the car? I picked up the ones for Bulkhead flats.
    Cheers all!

    Almost picked these up myself.
    There are no directions?

    I saw a HO Exact Rail video using CA glue.

    I used a thin layer of Aleene's Tacky glue. I also used small clamps to hold them in place while the glue dried. For the record, with the tacky glue, you can slide a thin exacto blade between the car and the deck and pop them off if need be.
