Gees ego, ya didnt tell him about the windex!

Get your tank other parts good and clean with acetone or naptha, then prior to applying the sticker, douse the part in Windex. The windex will allow you to postion the sticker perfectly. You'll need some sort of squeege to squeege out the windex, some guys have had decent luck with bondo spreaders. Also, you may want to soak the stickers in warm water prior to application so they will be more compliant on the compound curves.
