    Before removing the decal's backing paper, use some masking tape or other tape that won't peel the paint off your car to hold it in place. Put one strip of tape down the middle of the decal so it's being held vertically above and below. See how it looks and adjust if needed.

    With the decal still attached to the car by tape, lift up one side of the decal and remove the backing paper. Now cut that paper off. At this point you should have half of the decal ready to be permanently placed. Note: some decals already come with the backing paper split in half for easy application.
