no to both questions... this paint(NO Name) its an Enamel that takes for ever to dry and if clear coat it with normal urethane clear coats will dull the chrome effect, now the best way to clear coat it and keep some of that shine would be with a waterborne clear coat as it will not alter the aliminum particles like solvent clears will...

but that's why I am building a small silver nitrate kit(real electroless silver plating) that will not dull under 2k Clear coats..
