Duplicolor Aerosol Truck Bed Coating and UV

I did some searching and from what I found, Duplicolor Truck Bed Coatings have no UV protection and are likely to fade.
I don't have the money right now to replace my rusted fenders so I'm thinking of using bondo to repair and the Duplicolor Aerosol Truck Bed Coating to spray them inside and out.

My question is, has anyone done something like this and then used clear coat to protect them from fading?
Also, can someone recommend a good product to protect the coating from UV?

TIA,
Dave

I've used the duplicolor on my Jeep and my experience is that it fades almost as fast as you spray it on. I'm exaggerating of course, but you get the idea. It gets real chalky real fast. The good news is you can paint over it with anything, including krylon fusion. It'll still fade over time, but you'll only be touching up once a year instead of every three months. If Krylon makes a fusion clearcoat I would definitely try that.

Thanks for the advice, I'll pick some of that up.
