Default Re: Paint not hardening??

It'd been better if ya hadn't waxed it quite yet but it'll be fine, just remember it's still "soft" and be careful with zip/cable ties and stuff 'cause they'll embed into the paint. Just park it in the direct sun and leave it, do the other side the next day - that'll give it a pretty good cure, it'll get better with time
BarelyAWake, Thanks for the quick response..
Here in Bavaria Germany the sun doesnt seem to shine lol.. But I do have a space heater I will use.
Thanks for the advice. I have about 3 days until my motor gets here, so It will have time. Glad knowing it will harden eventually though. I applied a coat every 20 minutes btw... Dunno if that was right.. Once again. Thanks for the advice and quick response. VW
