In single stage the clear is added to the paint during mixing (by the dealer) according to specifications given by the manufacturer. In base clear, the base is dull when applied, the clear is applied over the base and brings out color. That system has been used on all cars and trucks since the late 80's, was probably around before that. It adds one more step to the painting, but is worth it to me. If you can keep the crud out in your painting enviornment, you really don't need base-clear, except it does give a somewhat brighter finish, probably the most important feature is the added UV portection. You can also put clear over single stage, but I see no advantage to that when compared to base clear. I believe you can add more clear to single stage in the last coat, also.
