Does anyone have any set or specific time they use between coats? and how long after it is spayed can you apply decals?

Easy answer is when it's dry, but it should dry to the touch within an hour (based on humidity, etc.). Let the decals fully cure before spraying a top coat though (at least overnight).

Hey Ken,
I would let the future dry over night to be safe. That's what I do with my canopies.

How do you paint the canopies anywa? I have heard of dipping them in the stuff, what is the best way to do this? and what do you not want to do when using future on canopies?

Just dip the canopy into the future with a pair of clamps so it won't fall in. After you've dipped it in there, take a paper towel and at a corner, place the towel there to soak up any excess future. The future addes a high gloss to your canopies after you've polished them. Let them dry over night, cause if not, you may get a big thumb print on your canopy. It's really strait forward and easy. One bottle will last an eternity.
