I think he means spraying a second coat of sealer over the first when the first is still wet. A little better film build. Going with a darker color, I would not wet sand the primer with any less than 600 regardless of what you do with the sealer. Put at least 3 or 4 coats of CC so you can water sand it. Start with 1500, then go to 2000 at least. I go a bit further by buffing after the 2000 sanding (with 3M Trizact compound - 3000 grit), then power watersand with 4000 grit followed with a foam pad and machine glaze. Looks like water sitting on the car. Good luck/

wet on wet is when you sand the car down for final paint, then when you are ready paint you spray a sealer or epoxy primer and without letting it fully cure you spray your base coat. if thats what you are doing i would reccommend sanding the car with 600 grit the spray your sealer let that flash and then start basing.
