I am in the process of restoring an old road bike and want to give the bike a fresh coat of paint. I plan to sand it down, prime, paint and than add some sort of clear coat finish to protect the paint and give the bike a nice shine. I want to place custom decals on the bike and was wondering at what stage of the process should I apply them? In particular, should they go on before or after I apply the clear coat finish? I think I have seen it done both ways (on bikes I have bought from stores) but am not sure what is the preferred method.
