Do it if you like it? It's your bike, you gotta ride it.

I dont want to go with paint because it scratches too easy and dont want to powdercoat because thats out of my budget so i was thinking sticker bomb and a can of cheap ghetto mart clear would work well

About as well as paint and clear.

The stickers will scratch and the clear will wear off, leaving stock bike paint.

Im turning the corner and agree. Bikes are made to be hammered and ridden, not parked as vag trailer queens.

If youre that worried about the paint..

Spray Aircraft grade paint stripper on it, let it soak, and wipe off the paint.
Either leave it raw (as is) or sand it and gauge grits. You can stop at a satisfying matt-silver color or you can continue to the finest grit possible and buff it to give it a chrome look (polished.)
Spray even coats of clear Adhesion Promoter and then use 2 cans of clearcoat and apply a light coat ever 40mins until there is no more clearcoat.

This will provide you with a consistent color that wont scratch or peel. However if you do manage to scratch through the immense amount of clearcoat, it will probably rust where the scratch is (unless you spray more clearcoat over it.)

Only do it if you never plan on taking them of again haha, they were a fucking bitch to remove since they're not high quality stickers & ripped pretty easily and left behind little bits of the sticker too
