You need to make sure that flatz can be cleared. I would stick with base coat on this. You are making this very complicated by trying to clear single stage(if i remember from the ol days you had to wait like 3 hours before clear coat) . Single stage cannot be sanded if it has metallic in it. And if you clear it the imperfections will still be in the single stage color coats. There are some good but cheap base coat systems out there. Why not just try base coat. I you "cocktail" a paint system like your trying to do the stability and longevity will be in question if you get it to work at all without a major chemical blow up.
