    Hello,

    Pat, When you painted you caps for your Sono's did you allow your color coats to dry (fully) before applying the clear enamel coats? Or did you just top coat the color coats at the same time (usually within 10 min to 1 hour)?

    Brian, Hank, You may also be able to answer?

    Thanks for the input!

    Casey

    I let my coats dry a full 24 hours before each layer.
    It went as follows:
    Wet sand
    Light coat
    10 minute wait
    Light coat
    24 hour cure
    repeat
    this was the same between the black and the clear coats.
    Its no piano finish but you can see the results here:
