in the mean time I went ahead and clear coated body after all touch ups were done. It seemed to hold up well. So, after couple of weeks waiting on it, I've started decals last night. Started with more difficult stripes. Mirco-Set/Sol worked well on Studio27 decals. Overall fit was reasonable and I am happy to get them on and out of my way. Remaining sponsor decals will be easier. It should look great with Rothmans decals on.
