what topcoat to get?

what kind of topcoat to buy? Acrylic Enamel, Urethane basecoat, Single Stage AU Acrylic Urethane, Acrylic Lacquer. I'm ready to do some sand blasting, Waterborne Wax & Grease Remover, spi Epoxy Primer, and topcoat, do i need to clearcoat the topcoat? the area I'm working on is the floor pan, inside trunk and under the car not the exterior. black satin, simi gloss?

how do i use the waterborne? put it on a rag and wipe?

For those areas all that you really need to do is put on 2 wet coats of epoxy..good practice to do that and work on spray gun adjustment until you get it to lay out wet and slick..I use the W&G remover as the final wipe before I paint..

Hope this helps...Once you get to the point of blocking then hit us again with more questions.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
