I just shot OMNI MBC and 161 clear today. Used MR186 reducer. Base flashed real fast. Had a couple of spot repairs in the first coat of base to take care of, it was dry in about 30 mnutes to sand 600 wet. I did not tack in between coats, but did tack after base. In order to get the clear "wet" had t really lay on a 3rd coat - it ran in spots. P-sheet recommends 2 coats. If had to do it again, I would shoot 2 coats clear, let cure, sand with 600-800, then 2 more coats clear, then 1000, 1500 and buff. A it stands, sanding is inevitable, but I doubt you will be able to snad in between clear coats if it is done in one day - just not enough time for the clear to harden sufficient.
