Default Clay PPF?

I've read mixed inputs on this topic. My '19 WRX has a full nose 3M PPF/clear bra. I plan on doing a full detail & minor paint correction & I wanted the areas covered in PPF looking as good as the rest of the car will come out. The area feels a bit gritty even after a thorough wash & I was wondering if I can clay the PPF.

I don't see why not. The idea behind PPF is that it protects from scratches, and most of them "heal" in the sunlight or with heat. Any marring introduced by the clay should fix itself. Just be cautions along the edges. I forgot about my PPF the last time I detailed my car and now have bits of clay stuck along all of the edges of the PPF and I toothbrush wasn't aggressive enough to get it out. I think I'll have to scrape it all out with a plastic razor blade .

Oooh... that sounds like a nightmare (at least in my world). Anyway that makes sense; thanks for sharing your thoughts.
