Stage 67 contains information on this.

Further finishing of the bodywork is not necessary, but you may wish to enhance the bodywork by applying a clear gloss coat to provide a high-gloss finish.
Note that it is an advanced technique only suitable for experienced modellers. Therefore you should be confident that you can complete the task to a high standard before you take this on.

The paintwork can be damaged by use of a solvent based gloss coat, therefore you should only use an aqueous (water-based) product such as Mr Hobby B-501 or Tamiya X-22 clear, (note that the Tamiya TS-13 clear aerosol is solvent based).
You should test any chosen product on an inside inconspicuous part of the bodywork to confirm that the gloss will not react with the paint of the model.
