I like doing things myself...I get to learn, it's fun and less expensive! Great job.
Yes, a primer specifically made for that purpose will work, id still scuff it up. Prep is very important, but the clear will make it all solid, and resilient, just be careful and follow the directions on the cans.

Yes, this is an avenue people can choose, but I chose to mask with tape and razor blade, just to be sure I didnt break the inside, as Ive heard its easy to do. I also did not remove the rear one, so I couldnt have safely removed the inside for that one.

Good tip for people removing both bowties!
