help me paint my foglites

So I received the paint from towerpaint and now I am ready to paint my foglights. So now what should I do? I'm kinda new to this? Do I need to use primer before i paint or what? clearcoat after? I went to kragen, but couldn,t find the can of clearcoat, anyone know what I should be looking for?(brand)

thanks

clean them very goo dwith like alchohal or something that dries on its own. i would use a nice coat of primer, then a paint slowly using light layers and alot of them it'll look better in the long run, then follow up with a few coats of clearcoat. You should be able to find clearcoat at a auto parts store.

maybe sand it down so it can be smooth before you primer it.

Does anyone know what brand clearcoat paint I should buy? I looked all over Kragen, but could not see any clearcoat paint, just primers and other paints.
