I sprayed a body with (stewmac) clear gloss nitro. I sprayed a number of coats waiting 1 hr between. Directions on the can of gloss nitro say 24 hrs before level sanding. So far so good - I will wait 24 hrs. Without posting pics to help explain why I'm doing this, it may be confusing but bare with me. Once this particular project is completed I will post a full thread detailing it but I'd rather not disclose it now. (top secret - I'd have to kill you ) Anyway, after 24 hrs, I want to tape/mask off certain areas that I want to leave gloss (no sanding/buffing), level sand the (majority) of the body frt & back and then spray satin, which does not require buffing/polishing. My intent/goal is that the masked-off sections will be gloss and the rest (majority) of the body will be satin. So here's my questions - The gloss directions say 12-16 days before final sanding and buffing, and the satin sez' 6-8 days before assembly and use of instrument. Can I spray the satin after waiting 24 hrs and level sanding, or do I need to wait 12-16 days before spraying the satin, and another 6-8 days more for full cure? If the gloss cures slower and the satin faster(?), will I run into problems with the gloss curing slower under the satin if I spray satin after 24 hrs/level sanding? Any insights will be appreciated.
