Paint / Decals Question

I'm getting ready to take my bike in for a powdercoat.  I had someone recommend putting the new frame decals on prior to getting a clear coat.  Is this right?  Or should the decals go on after the paint and clear coat?

Thanks!

Powder doesn't need clearcoat. If you paint it, do decals after clear...

Re: Paint / Decals Question

If u get the frame powdercoated just wetsand the powdercoat with 500 grit or 600 apply yoir decals were u want them.  Then make sure the frame is dust and dirt and grease free. Then u can clearcoat right over the powder and decals. Make sure to mist the first few coats of clear on. Make sure you let each coat flash properly then apply a meduim coat then u can start applying heavier coats.
