I painted the hood on my old truck with PPG DP40 epoxy primer and never did get around to doing any more to it. Sun, weather, bird poop, whatever, never bothered it. It washed up and looked about the same for about three years until I got rid of the truck.

question is how much sun the underside of your car is going to see ?
clear coating the epoxy is just a waste of time and money . it will also give a gloss to the red which will be incorrect .
Well I agree about the UV protection, that is pointless, but I guess my reasoning was that the clear would give me a bit more protection from stuff flying up and hitting the underside when I'm actually driving the car....as for whether it's incorrect...meh, none of my car is stock so that doesn't concern me.
