I'd go with something similar to the above:
Base and 'standard' clear, then once cured, flat and recoat with a satin clear.
This can be done by either adding a flattening/matting agent, or I use a matt clear with a 20% gloss level. This can be mixed with my standard clear to give any gloss level I want.

i like to go with a black base then clear it with a clear with flattining agent in
it .works real well.

Well I was waiting to see the replys on this one too, but since
no one is comming forth, here's my idea.
I get a real nice even satin finish right before buffing by going over
my 2000 grit color sanding with a 4000 grit Abralon pad (Mirka)
This might be exactly what you're after, it's a semi-gloss look
that looks scratch free, real even and consistant.
You might want to give that a try on a test panel and see.
(just my 2 cents worth)
