im debating on whether i should put some clear coat on them to let them shine a little bit and maybe lessen the chance of everything getting chipped and scratched???

It's probably more likely to get chipped and scratched with clear coat on it.

I did paint over the plastidip when doing my rear valence and now my foglight surrounds and have noticed no ill effects. I was half expecting some horrendous side effect, but if anything the paint adhered better the the plastidip than it would have to just the bare surface. I'm impressed.
