If I wet sand the paint with 1000/1500 will the clear coat bring out a polished finish to the paint or does that dull finish need to be polished before applying the clear?

yeah the paint will be flat and the clear will be a high gloss. that's normal.

are you using spray paint from a rattle can? if yes, this is not going to hold up long term anyway. you may get a few months before it peels etc.
you can buy real automotive paint and have the store put it in spray cans. but clear coating spray can paint is a waste of time.

you should do a little more research on the subject. find a local automotive paint store. they will have the documentation for the paints they sell. these usually have instructions on them. real automotive paint holds up 100% better. the rattle can home depot paint will still be ruined if you spill fuel on it. real automotive paint will not.

My rustoleum rattle can matte paint job still looks good after sitting outside 3 months and after 9 months of having it on there there’s no peeling no fading I wash it excessively.. but this has nothing to do with gloss I just wanted to show what you get with $20 of spray paint and $10 for tape, plastic, sand paper and whatever else you need.. i get complimented every ride for $30
