So i fixed up a rust spot and painted with my paint code. However, it's a flat and matte black color. How do i get the shine back? Should i use a clear coat? enamel or acrylic? Any product recommendations? Image attached (note - i am by no means a professional painter but wanted to fix a rust spot.

I would give the paint a week or so to cure, then wet sand it with 1000 grit and then spray it with clear coat. If you used enamel paint, then use enamel clear. If you used lacquer paint, use lacquer clear. Then let that cure for a week and wet sand it with 2000 grit and then use some polishing compound on it, before waxing the whole vehicle. I'm no professional either, but that's what I've been told by people who were, and that's the method I've used in the past with good results.
