    I would just use a few coats of sealant .. gloss of flat would be up to you There may be a better way , but I am assuming that this would work for what you want

      Your prep-work is very important. Did you sand the housing with fine sandpaper? The paint needs to be able to grab the surface. When painted, a smooth surface will scratch/chip very easily. If you spray the painted housing with a clearcoat it may be more resistant to scratches, but the scratches/chips you get will be deeper.

          No I do not normally scratch my "car inside", but then I do not plan on painting the inside of my truck. If you bring your car to get it repainted, would you like them to simply wash the car and just start painting it? No, you would expect they would sand the car down first because the intent is to have the new paint stay on the car.
