Anyone PPF over the rear decals? (the flat sticker ones, not ones with depth)

I know halo effect can happen when you go that route, but would be interested in anyone has and how it turned out. Prefer not to remove if I didn't have to.

I know it's a totally different animal, but hopefully this should help you. I had custom graphics made for my Raptor, then had Expel PPF put over the top. It's actually a 2 layer graphic. The big gray vinyl panel has a slightly darker Raptor laid on top. I actually like the look better with the PPF on top. It gave what looks like a very fine outline to the RAPTOR part of the graphic, which I really like. A good shop can hook you up, really nice PPF is more on the techs doing the work, than it is on the materials.

Maybe it will protect the decal and prevent what members posted earlier about their coming off

Only downside is PPF has a limited lifespan. removing the film will probably remove the decal. On my Exige I cut a window in the film for the Exige S decal. I would buy several of the OEM decals if doing this, just so if you get a scuffy in the parking lot you are not sans decal when they are NLA

The STEK PPF I had put on is warranted for 10 years, without peeling or yellowing.
Since my car is garaged the "kids" said it would last even longer. And STEK has a ceramic coating on it so it's hydrophobic as well.
