    Hello, just completed painting cabinet using an awesome stencil kit from Pinball Pimp. I used Alkyd satin enamel for green, satin enamel for white and black.
    Was wondering if I should clearcoat this cabinet or not? If so what would be best to use?
    Unfortunately I will not be keeping game due to money issues and wanted to know what will be best to do to sell.

    Read over Chris' threads. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/hep-this-week-9-17-18 He clear coats the cabinets.

    No idea if it might interact with the paint you used.

    I think I'd leave well enough alone.

    Auto paints are a matt finish so require a clear coat to get what ever shine you require that you feel is correct for the game. You have a satin finish now and you can still polish and buff to get a glossier temp finish. I think you are there.

    Nice paint job.
