Friberglass Workers, need expertise

When you're making a fiberglass box or molding the dash, how do you clear coat something so that it's smooth?

Alright, now what if I wanted to put clear coat on carbon fiber after it's been hardened?

if you took a carbon fiber Hood to a paint shop, they would clear coat right on top of that . . .

if reference to glass. . .

after you make ur mold and do all ur forming and you use bondo to make it smooth. a lot of sanding.. more bondo. sanding. . . bla bla bla. . make it baby smooth. prime it, sand it. smooth blah.

take it to a body shop, and they will prime it with their primer and then paint it, and clear coat it.
