Get some 800+ grit paint to wet sand... 1200 if you really want it to shine.
Gloss doesn't gum up if you keep your surface wet. As far as shine goes...
*For RATTLE CAN* Wetsand the base coat til its completely even and no orange peel. It will appear dull, but the CLEAR makes it glossy again, and then you can wetsand the clear with 1000,1500,2000, then polish for that ridiculously beautiful mirror shine.
Personally, I sand the base with 800. Then clear 3 coats. Sand with 1000 to eliminate Orange Peel, then 2000 til its completely flat. Then polish. My buffer wheel crapped out on me, so I had to do it by hand this last time... Ugh.
