Protecting decals on new powder coat

The paint having suffered over the years, I've decided to have my old 1978
Trek 710 powder coated, before I rebuild it as a dedicated touring bike. I
have acquired original Trek and Reynolds 531 decals, but I was wondering how
to protect them once they're applied. Can clear coat be sprayed on over
powder coat?

Yes, there is no problem with covering powder w/ clear coat. The only
issue is the clear coat not being as tough as the base.
