I try to stay with one painting system during a project. If my base coat is Testors enamel, I use Testors clear coats. Their clear lacquer is "cool" enough, being specially formulated for models, that it can be sprayed over Testors enamel paint without harm.  If you use Duplicolor, I'd use their clear as well... The only thing to look out for is that in Duplicolors' line, It's my understanding that their truck and van paint is lacquer based but their automotive colors are enamel... Confused yet?  If you want a surefire gloss clear coat that will go over almost ANY paint, get a bottle of Pledge with Future Shine, floor polish. The stuff is pure acrylic clear coat and will shine up nicely and protect and seal decals without issue. I've used it over lacquer and enamel and never had any issues.

Ditto, that. The K-123 or the Chevy Titan 90/GMC Astro 95 buildup fairly easily compared to some other offerings. Just keep test fitting and take your time...  If you want a medium duty COE, the ford C-series cab-overs are pretty nice, too. They are less temperamental to build than the Lindberg Dodge L-700's BUT... The 700 will build into a nice truck with a little extra attention and patience.  Clear as mud, now? ;^)
