Default Finishing Klass Kote

After shooting the final color coat and letting dry at least 24 hrs., what's the best way to finish up? Another 400 wet, rubbing compound, polish, or what.

I would wet sand with 400 wet or dry, apply automotive clear, wet sand with 1500 grit or higher and then buff with an auto compound. A stand out finish does not come without lots of effort.
