Just like the title said...

I have got some trim tape around my black painted windshield on my mini vigor canopy and I havent clear coated yet. I hope I can because it is gonna look real nasty if I have to take it off.

If I can I will put the others decals on their before I coat it

It's no problem. In the future, what some guys do is a coat of clear first, then the decals, followed by more clear. This way if you miss position a decal, you can pull it off without fear of pulling off your color coats.

Its not a bad idea to scuff them up with some fine steel wool before clearcoating them
