  • How long to wait between coats of clear coat?

  • Barry has said applying more clear within 24 hours without scuffing is also safe. Depends on the clear, Bob! You can’t do that with Production or Euro. is there any benefit to wait longer than 15 minutes between coats? i have always sprayed in less than sterile areas and wanted it out of the dust danger as soon as possible.

  • How many coats of clear coat should I put on?

  • I would put anywhere from two to three medium to heavy coats. Do not tack the first time. Instead, lay it on medium wet and get it glossy the first coat. Then, let it flash and wait for 10-15 minutes before you lay on the next coat. If you want to put additional coats of clear, you need to give it two weeks to let it cure.

  • How many coats of clear before WetSand?

  • If you apply 1 coat and sand it too thin the solvents from your next coat could attack the underlaying coat of clear. Your typical paint job is too apply 2-4 coats of clear then wetsand and polish.

  • Should I sand between coats of clear coat?

  • If you take the time to sand between coats you may need to allow extra drying time before re-coating. Typically you lay all of your clear on in one session, let it dry, wet sand if needed and wheel. As mentioned earlier, sanding between coats can turn into a nightmare. I used OMNI on my car.
