Well didnt quite go as planned. I ended up with runs and sags on the first clear coat. I decided to take a break for a fews to think about how I plan on attacking this but I hear that the longer you wait to sand the runs the harded it is to sand.. is this true?

I was planning on attacking it panel by panel. I seem to shoot one panel at a time much much better than the entire car in one shot.
Another questions how long after I sand the runs and the entire panel do I have before I can shoot the final two coats of clear before i begin to loose adhesion?
What is the best method so sand down these runs?
