Applying tank console insert

I had my tank console powder coated black, I got a new oem tank insert that I need to install. Anyone have tips on applying it. I don't want it crooked. Wondering if there is anything to put on first that will let me move it a little before its set in place to make adjustments.

Any advise is much appreciated

Thanks

Think you're going to have to just eyeball it the best you can. Not sure how it attaches, but if there is a label to peel off exposing the sticky material. Maybe just peel back a little bit, enough to tack the top or bottom. Then lay it down onto the console, hold it aligned and carefully peel the label off slowly keeping it aligned

I just laid it in there with the backing on to figure where I wanted it , then removed the backing paper and started laying it in , starting at the bottom. I don't think you can wet it like tint paper .

Got it from the harley store. Wasn't sure if I could put something down like isopropyl alcohol before.
