For the clear coat, you should wait at least 45 minutes before spraying the clearcoat over the paint, but wait no longer than 8 hours. Between coats of clear the time varies according to temperature, humidity, and air flow. The best test is the "string" test.

1. Find an area on masking tape near the wettest point of the sprayed clear.
2. Press your finger into the clear on the tape and lift about one inch.
3. Look for fine strands of clear is not ready for the second coat.
4. If the spot strings the clear is not ready for the second coat.
5. It is ready when the clear is tacky but not stringing.
