I think that depending on the paint system that is being used, time can
either be labor intense or pretty quick. The process I use is painting the
frame, apply the decals then clear coating once, then after drying I sand with
400 grit, apply 3 spot clears over decal then after drying, sand decal area
smooth to feather in, then apply 2 overalls for final finish. I don't usually
participate in these discusions but, well I figure I can learn if I'm doing
something wrong or right, never to old to learn from the masters.
