Liquid decal film can be used on old decals to prevent them from disintegrating when transferred...available on ebay and amazon

Randy,
I have made sheets of decals. I just use a can of clear enamel spray…let the sheet dry…cut the decal how I want it off of the sheet…soak in water…apply.

I have already applied the sticker to the pump and it work fine.
I want to seal it with a clear so it will hold up better outside.

Most clears will work. I've used matte clear from orielly auto parts and high-end urethane automotive type clears. Trick is to start with light coats such that clear wont start to get under the decal and lift it. So 2 or 3 light mist coats and then you can step it up to medium wetness coats. I almost never have an issue, especially with the decal you are doing. I had some lifting on a coke machine recently but it was minor and the sticker was cut into very thin strips.

(i'm assuming you are clear-coating the panel after applying the decal)
