not ideal . it will possibly flake off . far better to remove the decals them either replace or paint in new ones .
i,m sure there must be a sign writing printshop somewhere near you .
ask in a big transport yard who does theirs , most are sticker s now not proper sign writing .

Many of these companies are able to reproduce stuff on vinyl to a pattern.

Since 2005 this time
On my GReg Pilote it had a dimple finish. The decal on the after end kept bubbling up, I took a soft lead pencil, drew around the decal, then peeled it off, then painted it in using an oil based enamel paint. Looked good!

Tip; match the paint before you peel!
