Default Clear Coat Decals?

This question is for Lexan Car/Truck Bodies. Does anyone clear coat the decals on the outside of the body? Or is there any other tricks that may just re-enforce outside decals? Thanks for any info.

I dont. I didn't even know there was lexan safe clear.  Now if I am spraying a real car or RC boat than I do.

 I have put the decals on before paint and used them has stencils from the inside. A couple of times I had the local sign man make decal in reverse and then apply them and paint over.

I have seen online some people are using clear nail polish around the decals. Anyone have any experience with that?
