The Best Can of Clear You Ever Used

It seems i never run out of questions huh? Haha YC, use to abuse. But to get to the point

Ive used a couple diff kinds of clear coat, and while it got the job done satisfactorily, i do notice small speckles almost? Some brands worse then others. I would like to know what the best can of clear is that youve discovered. I want it to leave a shiny finish, while looking as if is was stock. What do you recomend?

I use duplicolor acrylic enamel clear coat. The small speckles happened to me one time. It happened because I put the clear coat on a little too thick. The reason for this is because it was getting dark and I was rushing to get it over with.(Don't rush the paint) So next day I sanded it, painted a coat of black, then a nice clear coat, and it came out nice. I like the clear coat I use.

Are you wet sanding and polishing after you spray your clear?
