I am starting the finishing on my latest project and have a question. I usually use one coat of the Seal A Cell clear followed by 3 or 4 coats of the Arm R Seal. Can you just do 3 or 4 coats of the Seal A Cell? I looked on the General Finishes website and couldn't find an answer. Thanx in advance for the help

I think you should be ok. It seems like a typical brush on formula. I looked by I couldnt find what they put in it but it seems basic which leads me to believe you can apply it and buff it to a acceptible finish.
I gaurentee there is a LJ who will be able to answer this better.
If you dont want to use arm r seal you can use some paste wax. thats always nice.

seal a cell will do fine for small items that are not used hard, the resins in Arm r seal are much stronger.. if I were going to do anything other than you have listed above which is an excellent finish , I would simply thin the arm r seal a little with mineral spirits ( for penetration),as a first coat and not use the seal a cell , however seal a cell has a nice amber tint to it and provides a warm base for the more clearer Arm r seal, The Arm R Seal just makes for a much more durable finish
