I've never used a clear coat over flat paint, I have heard of people doing it though.

These are pics of a black ultra flat spray paint with a clear coat over it. I was trying to go for a black with a satin look to it.

I was using the ultra flat paint that they sell at Advanced Auto; as far as the brand I would have have to look at it when I get home. So far I have painted everything but the tank.

you dont need clear if you use a paint with catalyst in it.

the clear can be "scuffed" to be a flat luster.
