Question accelerating paint curing time

would heat lamps work out? i mean like it wouldn't mess up anything right?

i was just looking for possible ways to accelerate my car's paint curing time - mostly on the hood so i can install some of Rockblocker's stuff there

any other suggestions? i have a worklight that's got 500x2 watts...maybe i can expose the hood to the light (from a proper distance of course) every night for at least an hour or two...

I know that would be nice, but just wait. You dont want to force anything. Being in the sun would help if you have any there.

I wouldnt install his product on fresh paint. It needs to breath for nearly 3 months... this is why you are advised not to wax for 3 months.

You may not care, but isnt that the point of the rock block... to preserve the paint? If you ruin the paint by putting the rock block on, then what have you accomplished?

ps, sorry RockBlocker, im not trying to kill your sale here. If someone finds out im wrong, please tell me. This is just my understanding.

but thanks for the responses

I am right there with you. The best person to talk to to is the painter. Wha you will look for is not being able to smell paint and leaving a fingernail impression in the paint.

No worries on killing a sale
