Blacked out babdges, CLearcoat?

So i blacked out my badges and im happy with the results. the question is do i clear coat and forever have those little imperfections or let them be b/c the paint wont wear down enough to worry about.

I put 3 coats of krylon fusion gloss black on, im having troubles getting all the lent off of them and i know i can wash the lent off once installed but if i clear coat and theres a few pieces lingering im screwed

help

Yeah I also used krylon fusion black and really liked the end results. Not to glossy at all! I also thought about taking the smaller Toyota emblem off the tailgate but never got around to it. Might do that this weekend, who knows!

fishing line and the daily sun work awesomely...and any leftover glue....some goo gone will do the trick. a double sided adhesive hold them on, and 3m tape works great to reinstall them.

easy to remove with some strong fishing line, as alot will recommend, i used 8# b/c i had some it kept breaking but still only took me around 20 minutes to take all the badges off... i left the adhesive on so that i knew where they went when i was going to reinstall got that off with goo gone also very easy... hardest part of the job was cutting out the new adhesive, which i used 3m dbl sided tape, to the badges
