Willy can you tell me how long I can wait to put the lacquer clearcoat on top of the lacquer topcoat. I heard that it can be put on at anytime. Another question is can the tocpoat be wetsanded prior to the clearcoat or does the last coat of topcoat have to be unsanded. Thanks

Color sanding and polishing was invented on lacquer paint. That is how you get a great lacquer finish. If the lacquer is well cured it should take a urethane clear coat just fine, just sand it w/ 400 before the clear. From your question it sounds like you have a fresh lacquer job. Why did you do lacquer instead of BC/CC in the first place? [/QUOTE]
