Default Rattle can spraying advice needed!

Ok, so I am certainly going about this @rse about face as I have already done most of the spraying but here goes!

I am after a bit of advice of how to get an acceptable level of finish spraying my belly pan with a rattle can.

I prepped the fairing and applied a coulpe of coats of white plastic primer.
wet sanded it with 1000 grit, applied three light coats of colour (canyon yellow) wet sanded with 1000 grit.
I have since applied about 4 coats of clear coat. Should I be wet sanding in between coats or hust after the last coat?
Is 4 or 5 coats of clear coat too much too little?
Also how long should I leave it before giving it a final wt sand and compound/polish?
I am using my greenhouse as a spray booth come low bake oven!!

I am using holts colour matched paint and Halfrauds clear coat. I know these aren't the best quality, but then neither is my belly pan nor my spraying technique! I am just hoping for a half decent result that will look ok when riding along or whilst squinting
Thanks all
