I thought that the metallic paints had a clear coat, the straight colours didn't. My silver one looks as though there's a clear coat on it.

yes ,my green NM has clear coat, today i was up at Autopro pricing paint to spray the front right gaurd and my spare wheel cover ,,they confirmed the clear coat was required,
Also i have a 2m x 100mm tube on the roof rack (like the Telstra vans do) for the fishing rods etc, was thinking about painting that too, Autopro guys said "no probs" ,,will it look a bit wanky,,,or more kinda 'matched in' any thaughts ??

yes, all metallic colours have a clear top coat, remember this when you do a touch up job must also use clear.
