So I'm planning on fixing a rock chip this weekend. Really nasty sucker, hit the driver side door under the mirror, about knee height. I can see metal... :sad 1:

So I have Mazda touch up paint in celestial blue already (bought it when I got the car. Preemptive strike!), but I was wondering whether I needed a clear coat, or if the Mazda paint is a paint/clear combo? Anyone know, or have any suggestions?

The OEM touchup paint has clear mixed in so its glossy and just as protective. Adding clear on top will only lead to a "bump" in the paint which would need to be wetsanded down flat. (unless u dont mind bumps)
