if you have a paint sprayer, you could use the clear like that, if not you need to buy the spray paint can clear coat....I would go with 2 cans of VHT if you plan on 3 layers, better to have too much than too little.

Just buy the duplicolor clear in the aerosol can, that can in your post will do you no good without a paint gun. Other than that, that'* the VHT stuff. I purchased two cans of VHT and I'm glad I did. Three light coats of VHT because it likes to run, I would recommend about three layers of clear, and pay attention to the articles in techinfo.

Should have it at most auto parts stores. I bought mine at Pepboys, and I've seen it, though slightly pricier, at Autozone.
