Acrylic enamel question

1078 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  sgtsteve
Hey guys, I’ve just finishing painting my 190E with acrylic enamel (arctic white) I’m wondering how long do I have to wait before I buff and wax her, put the trunk emblems back on etc. I’ve heard a slew of answers ranging from 48 hours to 6 weeks. Any insight would be appreciated.

If you used the right reducer according to the temp of the environment you are shooting in and compatible products, we usually Wait 3 months unless heat dried. If you wax it, you will seal the paint causing blistering, not a pretty site all chemicals need time to evaporate from the paint. There are products made for fresh paint if you wish to cut and buff it, thats about all you can do at this point. Of coarse its you call.
