Which clear is the best? I'm talkin bout the most glossy while still being good against UV rays over time. I want people to be scared to touch my car cause they think the paint is still wet.

Also, how many coats should I use to give the glossiest effect and to protect with out taking away from the actual paint and ice pearl?

use any the better name brand .. ie - hok,sikkens,standox,ppg,glasurit .. Apply 3 coats clear to get your depth then sand back and add another 1 coat for best flow out and gloss ..

what grit is best for sanding clear when applying more clear? :biggrin:
1500 - 2000 and make sure it is plenty wet, i usually use a water bottle and hold it at the top of the panel and sqeeze it a bit so i always have a constant trickle of water to wash away the sanding debris and forgien material ( dirt etc)
