I think a PPG premium clearcoat rocks and will be paying roughly $400 for mine. It holds up pretty darn good. So if you're not looking for a color that looks specifically good by one manufacturer I'd go PPG envirobase just so I can use their clearcoat.
I already have a gallon of SPI white so I will be using that under my PPG. Also got a gallon of UPOL cheap clear and will use that for the interior and dash but I recommend a good quality clear. Can't go wrong with PPG clear and I'm around showcars all day and everytime I see one done years ago and the paint looks good it always seems to be PPG. You can tell a lot about a clear when it has to be cut flat and buffed. Total different ball game then a factory peel. In other words, it needs to be perfect if cut flat and stay that way. The cheap stuff will die back and dull out and need buffing a million times til there's nothing left.
