Looking good!
I too used Humbrol enamel when I did mine on my black XF. Be prepared to see the colour fade.

Any alternatives you'd recommend for when that happens and I need to go over it again?
I used caliper paint on both my XFS and XFR and it never faded one iota.

That looks great!
Can you not just put a drop of clear enamel over the top, or mix it in with the red paint?

This.

What I did with the side lettering on my XF.

I think what Kim (OzXFR) has suggested more than the clear coat. It's UV that fades the pigment and I doubt that clear coat has any UV filtering properties.
