I would suggest wetsanding it before you even put on the clear coat. If you are going to use a spray can then you are going to have loads of overspray all over the skirts for sure. Don't put clear on it until the surface is smooth as smooth can be. Then clear it and wetsand the clear. Wait till its all dry, of course, before you do any of that. Definitely wetsand before the clear and after the clear if you are going to use a poof can to paint with.

1000 grit should be fine. Its a little more abrasive than 1500, obviously, so you may have some extra hazing. Mix some soap in with the water when you soak the paper. That should take some of the edge off and help lube the paper.

If you can go to an auto part store then I'm sure you could pick up some 1500 grit real easily. The 1000 will work but 1500 would be better.

You should wetsand the paint before you clear coat it. Then wetsand the clear coat after you are finished with that part. Then polish after you wetsand the clear coat. That should be it. No need to do more clear coat. Don't do more than 2 or 3 coats. Any more than that and it will be too thick and will crack or shatter if something hits it.
