Wrong. This is a common mistake that people make. Think about this, its clear the UV rays shine right through it. All a clear does is protect the coats below it from dirt and scrapes and maybe give a little more gloss in some cases.

Look like I said before its a spray bomb job, just paint it and leave it, the money you'll spend vs the benifet of having a clear isnt worth it.
