Clear recoat window....

I am wanting to put 1-2 more coats of clear on my project...I sprayed the clear about a week ago, let cure for a week, then sanded all spots with 800 grit...I am now ready to spray the final coats but Im a little concerned about missing the recoat window by so long. I was under the impression sanding it would ensure proper adhesion but I want to make sure this is correct...

I am using all Urekem products, the clear is MS 2k Poly clear UC-410

If it's sanded the recoat window means nothing, AS LONG AS the clear is fully cured. If it wasn't subjected to 65 degrees for a number of hours at the very least it may not be cured, that is a whole different ball game. Also, if you didn't apply very much and have sanded it thru or thin and your basecoat isn't catalyzed you can be in trouble there as well.
But if the clear film is thick enough from that first application and has fully cured. You can sand and recoat it anytime you want from now to the end of time.
