If I'm planning to wrap the front and sides with clear PPF and I was wondering if it's better to put the decals/stripes on before the PPF or after. Any installers recommend one vs the other?

I use to own a PPF company , we always removed any kind of stickers before installing . Reason stop air getting trapped around the decals, film will not lay flat and trap moisture,will probably end up getting bubbles and lifting .

That was one of the things I was wondering. Air pockets around the decal edges. Sounds like that's the case and I will be putting decals over the PPF. Thanks for the info!
