At this point I wouldn't even try urethane clear over it. Not much you can apply over uncured enamel accept maybe more enamel. If the enamel is applied correctly it will shine just as much as if clear coated. It is the prep and the application technique that gives the shine. If one can't get enamel to shine adequately than clear will be no different. Scuff it down and take what you learned from the first job and usually the second time will look twice as good. That's why one should practice on old car hoods/fenders until it looks good and gun adjustments /reducer/air pressure and technique are all correct. No amount of clear will make up for this.Simply put ( and no judgement intended here) if it doesn't shine , application technique/prep was probably not correct. Laquer clear (didn't know you could still get it ) has absolutely no use in modern refinish industry.

One thing I forgot to mention was that usually the people who say that simply putting a cote of clear on makes it shine a lot more are bassically saying that they are a better painter after practicing for two coats before , plus they now have laid down two coats of paint that will flow and bridge any prep flaws a little and applying a third coat of anything will probably look better than the first and second. It"s not the clear , it"s the practice.
