Default Best clear coat for panels

For those that used a clear coat over dry transfers, what clear coat do you recommend?

Default Recently used this over dry transfers

Eastwood polyurethane matte, clearcoat.
3 Very light dust coats, 15 min between coats followed by two more medium wet coats.
Came out beautifully.

A bit spendy but worth it.

PPG Shopline has held up well, about 12 years now.

Sprayed 3 or 4 coats, cured, block-sanded wet over the lettering with 400, one more cross coat.

Iím closing in on finishing the panel. Does PPG refer to it as Shopline Clear Coat?
