im going to tell you right now that when you are custom painting all that 24 hour window crap goes completely out the window. even if you shoot intercoat clear on it you still have the window since its nothing more than clear base. i will sometimes have things sit here in basecoat for 2 weeks before the graphics go on. or a month while its being airbrushed. if you are doing a graphics job where the background gets shot first then go ahead and clear it then sand it down and do the graphics. this doesn't always happen though. sometimes the background color gets sprayed last. for the most part dont worry about it. you not going to have any kind of adhesion problem. the clear sticks fine.
