Adding a small decal detail to a new frame
I have a brand new steel fixed (IRO Mark V Pro) frame, I'd like to add a Reynolds 631 insignia decal to as a small custom detail. Depending on what I end up for a decal-either water slide type or custom cut vinyl, what are my options for clear coating decal? Brush on spray on etc.? It's a brand new frame with a brand new paint job so I don;t want to risk messing up finish,so I just want to see what my options are before I build frame up-if it would be worth doing this. Does vinyl even have to be clear coated? I searched the forums but could not find a definitive answer. Thanks.
FWIW-I started riding in the late 80s-I alway liked seeing a Columbus, Reynolds, True Temper etc tubing sticker on a nice steel frame. I think it's a nice classy detail, that probably I'll be the only one to notice.
PS I've PMd JRestore to see if this was something he could make if I provided artwork(I'm a professional designer), so if any others have used his decals, I'd appreciate any input into the above process.
