    I don't know for sure but I think it requires multiple coats.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    thanx zebrahum

    now i am doing that but there must be an easier way to do this as i believe that Cannondale doesnt waste a week just to hide the stickers under the clear coat properly
    as spraying two coats then wait 1 day another coat another day
    untill you reach some thickness above the sticker and sand down to the frame coat the re coat...

    Well Cannondale wouldn't be using a liquid paint like you're trying to do. They'll be using a clear powdercoat which goes on thicker and wouldn't require multiple coats. Or at least that's what I assume they do. I've been wrong before...

    I would recommend sanding the frame/carbon down like you were doing a normal paint job. Once you apply this sticker "recommend a die cut sticker" apply about 3 solid coats of clear then wet sand smooth

    I just did this to so,e carbon bars and they came out great
