decal/graphics

So I have my bike all torn down painting and have a question about decals and graphics. Once they are on, is it best to do another clear coat over them or no?

I would say clear over them. On the other hand if you sell it, the buyer can remove them if they wish.

Yeah, if you're sure you want them to always be there, then clear over them will prevent the edges and corners from curling. Also, easier to wax because there is no edge.

clearing over them gives it a more "factory" look, but it is nice to be able to take them off if you wish
