Yes, if scuffed and cleared it should result in shiny finish, but I'd check with the folks at SEM to be sure.

Re: clear over SEM hot rod black

a matte clear of a different single stage.

a flattening agent can be added to a clear, but too much turns it slightly grayish.

check out the Rich Evans paint line Vintage Flatz ???
