The reason for this is that I feel the base will lay down flatter and give you a better shot at a flat, shiny clear finish. Also, the longer your in the both the more chance of getting dirt in your paint... don't get me wrong, sealer does have it's place.
To make a paint job stand out from the rest, I'll seal it and then wetsand sealer followed by paint and clear.
