Question Time between Clear coats

Guys,

I have another question. I am planning to finish the exterior of my s-10 this weekend. Wifes gone...weathers nice.

Anyway, I am debating on the method for applying the ghost flames. I am using urethane two stage. I would like to lay down the base and one coat of clear before the flames Friday, and then the pearl flames and two more clear coats on Saturday. I know there can be issues with trapped solvent when applying paint coats at strange intervals like this. Will one day between clear coats give me trouble? I am using Dupont Clear. If so I can put the flames directly over the base and then all the clear at once. Any suggestions would be greatly appriceiated. I really dont want to F this up. I am not looking forward to days of rework and $400 more in supplies.

Thanks,

Chris
