Now days I spray two coats and only two coats ,if I want more clear I spray two more coats after two days...and after sanding with 600-800 (of coarse)...to check to see if the clear is cured enough I press my finger nail into the clear to see if it leaves an indentation,if it does ,its not ready....
thanks, i put on 3 coats on dec. 24 and it seems dry now but not getting the high polish i think i should be seeing. im going to polish again with a diffrent compound in the next week or so.
