Clear coat for carbon fibre

Hi

I am going to try and refinish my carbon fibre coil pack cover and wondered if anyone can recommend a clear coat to use. The clear coat has yellowed and has cracks so was going to rub it down with wet and dry and then spray with clear coat. Was thinking I would use hycote vht clear but is there anything better I should use.

Cheers
