overlapping coats

Sir,

Sorry for asking so many questions and do I appreciate all your help. I am in the middle of the first phase of using DiamondFinish to seal/protect the show chrome on my Goldwing and have a question about overlapping cured coats. Several of the larger pieces (which need to have three coats on the top, bottom, and all four sides) will need to have the coats applied using a brush. My plan is to suspend each piece about one inch above my work surface using small painter's cones and apply three coats to the bottom and four sides...then, after each is fully cured, flip and apply three coats to the top. My problem is that the edges are rounded (about a one inch radius) so to maintain the seamless mirror finish I will need to overlap the coats on the four sides. Also a problem is that, to prevent the cones from marring the bottom coats when I flip the pieces, I would need to allow them to fully cure (thinking around two to three days)...so my question is -- is it safe to apply additional coats of DiamondFinish over fully cured coats?? Do I need to sand down the area where the coats will overlap and if so...what is the finest grit I can use?? My hope is to have the pieces look as if they were dipped in liquid glass.

Thanks in advance for your help with this...
