If you try to clear coat before the paint is fully dry then he is absolutely right. If you do it after you are sure the paint is dry then you are fine. Painting is an art of patience. Take your time with it. Give the paint plenty of time to dry before you clear coat it and you will be fine.

If you have never painted before or taken a class with painting, dont have the right equipment etc then i dont reccommend painting yourself. It seems like you are going to anyway, so i reccommend testing the paint by touching the overspray on the masking paper. When we did mine it took 5 minutes between each coat of color, then 30 minutes before clearcoat and 5 minutes between each of those coats.

ive painted cars before with the gun and painted w/ cans b4 just that this was the first time i painted something on MY car. its always easier when your doing someone elses car or when u got someone there telling u what to do step by step. this was the first time i did my own car by my self. but the first one came out good and now its ready for clear coat
