RODDER18 If you want the look of primer you may want to use flat clear or clear with a matting agent. Check with your paint supplier but have cleared over epoxy primer and have never had a problem.

That's not true, clear will stick to most any painted/primed surface
if it's prepared properly.

somebody told me that clear base coat behaves more like base coat than clear coat and will stick to whaterver base coat can stick, but clear top coat can only stick to base coats...

Yes, you can clearcoat over primer, but you need to talk to your paint store about the kind of primer, and kind of final clear, and how the topcoat should be used over it.

Clear Base coat vs Clear Top coat

What's the Big difference between these two paints(2k Urethane) beside UV light protection? I was told that Clear coat its just paint without pigment....

can Clear coat stick to primers or do I need to put clear base coat first and then clear coat if I want the look of shiny gray primer?..
