Get a black tube of Meguiar's Swirl Remover and a light cut Meguiar's foam buffing wheel. After the black has cured for at least a week, chuck the foam wheel into a 600 rpm drill and polish that black coat. It'll gleam.
For me the secret to a great clear coat was to apply three coats of it while the gloss black was just flashing off so the coats bonded (it wasn't lacquer which melts into any undercoat). Then followed by 1500 grit and the Meguiar's procedure.
