well, I personally wait at least an hour between clear coats.
you have to give the clear a chance to "gas out" (let the solvents evaporate) before you spray more.
the "gas" from the solvents can be trapped under the clear if you re-coat it too soon, and that will cause bubbles to form.
I don't go by any set rules, i just spray it when i feel the time is right.
I just do this for fun....I'm not an expert painter.
