Hello Everyone,
I have a question I'm sure you guys will be able to answer. I'm doing my first paint job and I am wondering, once I get the poly and urethane primer totally blocked out and ready for paint, can I spray the epoxy sealer (1 coat or just enough for uniformity coverage), then 3 coats of base or as many that are needed (allowing 30 minutes to flash between coats as recommended), and the 3 coats of clear (allowing 30 minutes to flash between coats as recommended), all in the same day, back to back? Not sure if that is common practice or should I wait over night between stages. I do not want to scuff/sand if it is not necessary.

Thanks for the help ~ Lenny B

yep you can do all back to back waiting flash times.

30 minutes seems like a long flash time for clear.

Thanks Dave. The flash time #'s were just for example. Thanks again.

Is this a Resto or a collision job ? Makes a difference
