Thanks for the response. Not what I was looking for. What I had in mind was a minimum temperature that would work for a proper installation. The Boxster is in my garage which can be warmed up.

most decals are plastic, so the hotter it is the better adhesion you'll get.

You can also use a heat gun to warm the area up

Start with the decal at room temp. Heat gun the surface your applying it to. I would do it inside if possible. If it warmer than 50 inside you got it licked.
