For price and quality, try SPI Universal Clear...sprays great, excellent flow and it will set up faster than 2 weeks...SPI also makes a number of other clears all priced extremely well...give them a call, let the guys know what you want from a clear and they will hook you up with a clear that will meet your needs.
and to think, a lot of these newer production clears are what he's asking for and they buff like crap, die back, and chip like you say.
