Maybe try a Krylon clear gloss?

I have found that the high gloss enamal will yellow wjite paint, so I am not sure how close you want the ivory to look, it may darken up a bit if you choose that.
All of you guys, I'm really grateful for all your insights. Valid stuff.
I know what you mean Kevin. Years ago I used Testers clear enamel that really yellowed bad. I was kind of hoping that would've been resolved by 2012, it's also why I hoped lacquer would be the way to go. If Testers lacquer is too hot, then automotive lacquer will really be harsh.
ACE - that's it exactly. The gold (and interior treatment) is inspired by Oldsmobile's contribution to the mix with the '54 F-88.
Sean and MAGNUM, I think you might be right on the two part urethane but it's more involved than I care to get on this project. Future I'm not comfortable with yet. I didn't like the results I got last time. Operator error I'm sure.
Casey and Bob, I'm inclined to go in your direction. Bob I appreciate you sharing the results of your tests.

Result: "No runs, no drips, no errors." No luster conflict and no reaction to either lacquer or enamel. Doesn't bring any life to brush painted silver though. I'm in business boys, thanks again.
