Acme? Really? They have brought that name back! Wow I can't believe it! I sprayed HUNDREDS of gallons of Acme back in the day, wow.

Anyway, what you MUST do is simply get the tech sheets on the product you are spraying and follow them! They will spell out to you "flash" time between coats, I don't want to throw a number out there because it may be different now. Besides, there will be things like temperature and "speed" of the reducer and stuff like that to think about.

Pay attention to re-coat windows on the tech sheets. Some enamels require 24-72 hrs before recoat with something else and possibly scuff sanded again. If I'm doing a single stage with a clear coat I usually pick a paint system that recommends it so it can be done wet on wet with only flash times and it's usually urethane on urethane of the same brand so there's no reaction issues. You didn't say which products specifically or what the plan is as far as 2 tone. If the silver is Wanda base it's a polyester product, an acrylic enamel, and a urethane clear is a whole lot of mixing and matching different products with different properties together and hoping there isn't going to be any issues. If the Wanda base is anything like other Akzo Nobel bases when put on top of uncured paint it will turn it into wrinkle finish.
