I did bake them after each stage and also warmed up the calipers before I started too. It helped the paint stick really well having it up to about 100 degrees to start with.
First the primer went on, baked for 20min at 170, let cool to 90-100 degrees.
Then Color, bake for 20 at 170, let cool overnight.
Warm back up the next day to 100 then clear, clear, clear, then bake for 2 hours at 170 then cool slowly overnight.

Then they sat for a couple days before I put them on...
It's the most patient thing I have ever done but they are basically flawless!

Good luck,
