My goal would be to get it stay FLAT as possible. Reasoning for asking about clear coat was purely to make it easier to get mud off.

So it's been a week with the plasti dip on my jeep and I still like it but it's hard to work on any part of the jeep and not mess up the edges. If I had the choice to do it again I'd pass, not really worth the money. At least I still have some leftover to fix it. I'll see how long I make it until I just take it off. But even slightly messed up it looks better than the junky paint underneath. Now this could be because I didn't apply it 100% correctly, I know it definitely wasn't a professional job. Just wanted to update anyone thinking about this.
