I make biplane whirligigs....I'm wondering if I can clear coat over vinyl numbers..thinking about putting mailbox numbers and names on my whirligigs.

You could always do a test with a spray can of Deft. It dries clear...and pretty fast. I have no idea how it would turn out.

You might get by with something that doesn't have strong solvents, like a waterborne. That has the added advantage of not adding an amber color to the decals. I'm guessing anything with strong solvents is going to curl/melt/or some other bad thing to the vinyl and possibly the paint underneath them.
