Couple of base coat/clear coat questions

A few quick questions for a PPG base/clear coat job:

1) Paint shop said since we are using the low end of PPG's product line, it may take 3 coats to cover. Said to wait 15 minutes between coats. Agree? Temp this weekend will be in the 70s.

2) Runs -Paint shop said to use 1200 grit and sand out any runs between coats. Agree?

3) Clear - How many coats of clear would folks recommend? Do you sand between these? And if not, how long do you wait to put on a second or third coat?

If there is anything else you would recommend we keep in mind, let us know. We are shooting on Saturday. We don't expect it to be perfect, but expect to learn a lot doing it..
