    Good Luck with that, I've never seen a "good" clear gun under $300. If you want a really good clear gun check out the Sagola 4600 linked below. But it is under $500.

    Recoat time can vary depending on the temperature. If it's warm I'd recommend applying your topcoat in the shorter period (15 hrs) no sealer needed.
