Center Radio Bezel/Console painted black

So I bought Rustoleum Plastic paint because it really does work so well. I bainted the piece that accomodates one cup holder, and the shifter/airbag switch I scuffed it real nice and gave it a nice first coat. Here are pics, I also bought Crystal Clear"" Clear coat I'm wondering once i sand it with fine sand paper and do my 2nd coat if I can apply this clear coat Here are some pix so far

I wouldn't clear coat it. I did my half door panels this winter black and clear coated them w/ minway poly acrylic semi gloss. They look awesome. But, if and when they scratch (and they have) you cannot spray the spot to touch up. I did the entire rest of my interior this spring and ran no clearcoat. Simple to touch up, and looks great.

I used Rustoleum Textured for Plastic on the door (can't tell because of the clear coat). Krylon Fusion for the rest of the interior. Original color was tan now black. Like I said, the clear coat is nice but touching up and scratches or chips will be tough.
