Suggestions on clear coat

I am enjoying my current "winter build" project. With temps around 0 and snow on the ground what else can I do? I have purchased some stick on lettering and some custom logos that make the project a little more personalized. People on this forum set a pretty high bar when it comes to building and overbuilding and I want to keep up the tradition.

The bike is powder coated and the lettering looks just as nice as I hoped. I am asking for suggestions on whether or not I should apply a clear coat? If so, how many coats? Is rattle can a good choice (any brands suggested) or should I go to a body shop and have it professionally done?

As always, thanks for the help.

I can only add that i have used the dry transfer markings with great success, no clear coat.

Clear coat can be sprayed from a can, like any paint if you use a little caution and take your time.
