    Silicon thin coat render advise

    Would you do both coats of the x32 in 1 day or do it in 2 days as for the cold weather or do you think its not to cold yet If it was done over 2 days do you scratch the 1st coat as iv been told no but seems a bit not normal to me as normaly any base coat is scratched to receive the top coat ??
