My '99 is still in great shape, but the clear coat is peeling on the
top of the cab. I would like to wet-sand, then apply some new
I'd like to know what sandpaper, and clear coat (rattle can) to
use. Any tips would be appreciated.

i have used Duplicolor clear coat on parts of my old chevy, held up pretty good for the 3 years i've had it, but i recommend making sure you leave enough time for it to dry between coats, and really take your time with it store it in a climate controlled environment and apply 3-4 coats. it looks great. i suggest maybe a 600 grit wet and dry sand paper to remove the layer of clear on your truck now then remove any residue/dust particles with some minerals, make sure your prep is perfect do not sand in between coats just allow 12-24 hrs to dry and wipe it down with more minerals and apply the next coat, once all finished wet sand with 2500 grit, then polish... its honestly a hit or miss with the duplicolor stuff, maybe practice on some things.
