I live in South Florida and its hot as hell, but I put on 3 coats in 30 minutes because the paint dried so fast, and then I waited like 5 more minutes then put my wheels back on, the wheels don't touch the calipers so I figured what the hell I'll put the wheel on. Plus I did one wheel at a time with my jack that comes with the car
, the instructions say wait one hour before 2nd coating.....Bullshit, I felt that it was dry enough to 2nd coat, then 3rd coat so I proceeded. Then I let the car sit in the sun for a good 4 hours, the I had to go to a Bday party so I drove and its been a week now and they still look sexy . I recommend Dupli-Color Brake caliper kit, which I bought for $17 at the local auto store here. Its a brush on so you dont have to tape off the whole world.
