Painting over vinyl

So I’m about to shoot clear on my boat and I used a vinyl decal for the windshield on the cowl. It’s rather shiny and I’m concerned about adhesion. I’ve read a couple schools of thought. 1.) spray a light mist over it and let it flash. Then paint the cowl with normal passes. 2.). Hit it with some fine sandpaper to leave some teeth and then paint normally. I’m concerned this may damage the decal.

I’m using Spraymax 2K in a can. Any thoughts?
