If it won't be handled much I think it wouldn't even need a clear coat. Hot rods get painted in primer only all the time and stay that way for years.

Yah, that should work just fine. They are both Rustoleum so there shouldn't be any compatibility issues. You should check to make sure the clear coat is not a lacquer paint if the color paint is an enamel. (Just to be safe)
You can spray enamel over enamel, and lacquer over lacquer, and even enamel over lacquer, but you shouldn't spray lacquer over enamel as the solvents in the lacquer will attack the enamel paint and make it do ugly things.

cant find a paint color you after see if a local body shop can mix you some up ? try looking at car manufacturer color books and find one close then use the reference code it give for the paint and i'm sure somewhere can mix if for you :D
