UV clear on industral enamel

I have a 4x4 in progress. Being its a 4x4 dont wont to spend big money on paint. Were I work we build large continers. So I got some of the safty orange. Its an enamel from syrewn willams desinged for airless spray. I mix it 50/50 with reducer. I have spryed the truck in stages as I go so do to fade and other facters the shades are a littel diffrent. So my plan is once i get it all back togeter to respray for a solid match. however I have notced some fade diffrince from parts that see the sun and ones that done and there is less than a year on the truck. So I would like to spay a UV clear over the paint. Will thiss help with the fade are am i just wasting money and should just respray the truck once a year are so?

I'm no expert at all, thought I'd throw this out though... Some clears can go over that kind of product, but it needs to be fully 'cured' first. If you just thinned it and didn't use the 'catalyst' that may or may not be available for that paint, that means waiting awhile after your final coat...

I'm actually 'for' putting a good clear on to protect it, maybe you can buy the 'hardener' for that kind of paint for your final coat and then clear it a few days later...

SPI Universal Clear is what I'd recommend, it is okay to user over hardened enamels.

There is no activator for it, however i have thought about adding hardener for acrylic enamel. however I know with acrylic enamels you have to wait a while to shoot anything else. So my plan is to spray my orange, then wait at least 2 weeks and retape and shoot the clear. I'm not driving it yet so leaving it till i shoot the clear will be no problem.

It's synthetic enamel, get a can of hardner from tractor supply for their enamel and mix it in then clear after a day or so.
