Sure It would look better, but when I was shopping, my local store was out of gloss clear coat. I still seriously considering to redo mine, because I want to add angels eyes.

i would be interested to see the Angel Eyes, i think the only car i have seen them really look good on is BMWs, there are too many ricers out there with angels eyes on every type of car imaginable. But i would still be interested to see it if you do it.
