Remeber also that a poly will add an amber tone to the paint, and may not stick well if you're not thorough about prepping the existing finish..(ie: cleaning grease, wax etc off.)..I would use a waterborne acrylic urethane...water white..(meaning clear, no color) and easy to apply with padding technique or Golden Taklon brush, but you still need to clean first. You can get a satin sheen that will not impart alot of gloss to the look, too, it will look like there's nothing on it.
