If you want to keep your new paintjob in good condition and avoid chipping, then yes, you will want to spray some type of matte clearcoat / finish onto it.

As for all his coats, they are probably in real thin layers. You don't want huge thick coats all at once.

When painting any surface, surface preparation is critical to ensuring a long lasting paint job. Proper surface preparation includes cleaning, patching or removing blemishes, taping, etching or sanding, and priming. If you fail to properly prepare the surface, no paint, regardless of quality, painting skill, or number of applications, will last very long.

After that, use a good quality paint, and apply even, smooth applications of paint, and paint intended for the surface you have prepped. One common mistake many people make is rushing the job, attempting to apply one heavy coat of paint, often causing the paint to run or drip, when it is better to apply multiple layers of paint evenly. Accept the fact that no paint job will last forever, and a few touch-ups now and then will be necessary, but if you take your time and do a quality job at the start, your work will return your investment of time, effort, and money many times over.
