Any modern car (ie '80s and up) with metallic paint will have a clear coat. The exceptions are 'basic' colors like regular red, white, and black. I'm not sure if those colors have a clear coat on the 9k or not, but most 9k will definitely have a clear coat. Once it's gone I really doubt there's much you can do. You may as well keep waxing cracked and delaminating clear coat though it's just (slightly) delaying the inevitable. The base color coat is very thin and delicate, so be very careful around it and don't use anything abrasive. You can try re-spraying a clear over it, but I don't think it would last long, stick well, or look good. Would be curious to hear more about the products you mention though?
