Maybe someone else already did it this way or a better way?
I dont know about clear coating over primer... but I cant really think of a reason it wouldnt work. Its essentially the same as shooting a single stage on there but without any pigment. Dont see why you couldnt block it out with 600 and clear.

You could check into some pastel new car colors, I know I have seen some Kia's or similar running around with what to me looks like clearcoated primer, but Im sure its BC/cc... You should ask at the paint store
