Quoted from dasvis:
This has all been covered many times in this thread... Read it!
I have read this thread and others, but many of the individual steps are discussed at length without noting how they fit into a full work stream. Based on the reading I've done, I'm pretty sure I have the order correct, but I was hoping to doublecheck before I made any stupid mistakes that would complicate the process.
As for the clear coat questions, I did go back and look for technical info, but all of the materials seem to be for home based products, not necessarily what a professional shop might use. I apologize if I overlooked something obvious, but this is an 80 page thread with a lot of very specific technical discussion, not all of which applies to every restoration.
