Acrylic enamel question

1080 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.

Did you paint it yourself? Did you use an accelerator for the paint? You could buff/color sand in a day and put the labels on. I'd wait a few weeks before sealing it with any kind of wax.
Yes I painted it myself with the help of guy who actually knew what he was doing. We used a a/e hardener, that the same as an accelerator?
Yes. Did you also shoot a clear coat? I find a single stage white (no clear) is harder to keep clean.
Just curious, how many gallon was the tank on the compressor?
