if you want a good shine you need more than just clear coat.
If your paint job and prepwork is really smooth, then you need to polish it, and then lay down a good wax job

here's a link that might help you out.

yea i've boughten it at Discount AutoParts,Pepboys, and AutoZone and ive seen it at other autoparts like AcDelco auto part stores so u should be able to come across a can... but i think they made new cans cuz i noe they made new canz for the kandies now the cans are like a black n wine color fading i think with a picture of a car but it still sayz "Kandy Apple/MetalFlake"

but if you read the spray can you should see whether or not you can use the clear over specific paints...cuz thats what theprob is. u cant use certain paints over other ones....right now i cant think of the different ones but i know what your talkin about.

at work i sprayed some headlight buckets flat black, but because of the original paint beneath, the stuff i sprayed immediatly cracked. so i had to go over it with a different type of flat black paint.

im not tryna sound like an ass or nothing... but maybe that stuff that made the paint crack was grease?... i dunno cuz once me like an idiot i forgot.... but like along time ago i spilled some black magic on a model car... and it dried.... and then like 8 months later i went to respray the model another color... and the paint cracked cuz of it...lol..... oh and uhm the clear that im talkin bout should work just fine with that paint cuz itz for automotive paint...neverrrrrr messed up any of my paint....
