single stage paint to be cleared over.

not sure if I'm painting this or not, as my boss throws more curveballs than Barry Zito, but I'd like to make sure nothing goes wrong. I was thinking single stage/2 coats, let cure, and then block sand the single stage with 800 and clear. Is this a good idea? OR, should we spray the single stage, let it flash for an hour, then clear coat?

I was thinking with a single stage that it would need to be cured before clearing, as that is what I was taught.

On recommendation of my paint supplier guy (who also paints a few cars himself), I mixed clear into the last 2 coats of single stage on this 64 (25-30% clear). I wanted a semi stock appearing finish with a nice gloss, but without the clear coat look. I'd do it this way again in a heartbeat, as it came out just the way I wanted.

Just did this 1 with single stage urethane with hardener, 2 coats
Let it sit overnight, hit a few spots with 800 for dust nibs, 4 coats of SPI universial clear, no need to buff @ all.

Single stage with a gloss additive hardener. Follow directions on recoat times. Clear coat. Do it this way all the time since the late 70's depending on the colors.

Tech 69, I have done this quite a few times using PPG concept s/s. The coverage is so good with this paint that 1 full wet coat is all that you need. Then I let flash for two hours, then clear right over it as you would a base clear job. I personally do not see any gain with wet sanding and then clearing as it is just a lot of extra work and time.

that sounds like a great idea and the final primer is red and the car is red so one coat will probably do the job. I'll mention that to the boss. I was taught to let it cure but we won't have to spray over mismatch primers so I think this will work with one coat. Not a showcar either so the extra blocking would be excessive for this job. Thank you guys for your responses. I imagine with a 2 hour flash you can go for gold on your first coat of clear.
