A nap between epoxy and surfacer might be a good thing. Follow the tech sheets as to recoat windows. As for the clear, the cheaper the clear, the less apt it is to be forgiving on your recoat times. If you're spraying clear in less than ideal conditions such as the high end of the activator's range, you need to hustle up and keep the recoat window short, feel the paper where you started clearing, if it is tacky, not wet, put on the next coat of clear starting then. if you allow too much time, you'll end up with dry spray any where your pattern overlaps like in the middle of the upper panels as far as you can reach and the patterns overlap. I hope this makes sense.
Good luck,
Chip.

Thanks guys! So spray the clear when it's tacky..

So I don't have to worry about solvent pop or anything? Just as long as it doesn't run (by laying it down on a sticky surface)?

This is the way I've sprayed when I've used lesser clear such as Nason. I now use BarryK's clear exclusively it is Southern Polyurethanes Universal clear, you can take a nap, eat a meal, go for a walk and then come back and spray another coat, no dry spots. Of all the clear I've used, it is my favorite. I learned with DuPont's ChromaClear and ChromaPremier, SPI universal to me is way better.

Well I am trying his universal clear this time.. 2.1voc, though.

But what is the correct way? Wait the bare minmum of the flash time for this clear.. or go overkill and wait an hour?

With his clear, it doesn't seem to matter, I'm impatient so I push the window and when it gets really tacky on the paper where I started spraying, I start again with the clear. Knock on wood, I haven't had any problems with this method. Barry can set you straight on it if I'm wrong.
