I'm not exactly an expert at this.  But I would suggest a wet rub down with
600 grit before applying the clearcoat.

If you have lots of "orange peel" in the colour coats, then use 400 grit

If you can swing it, you will get much better results with a HVLP tankless
spray unit from your local hardware store.  Less mess too.
