bad idea, especially if you're cutting your paint with mineral spirits.

...unless you wanna post some pictures of your paintjob on fire...

"Here is my weeks of hard work, and here is it burning merrily in my driveway"

>.< that would be bad times.

i would just suggest letting it air dry.

I havent. I did however try using a dryer on my tailgate when I was in the experimenting stages. I was mainly trying to pop the bubbles but instead it made some of the paint roll up. With the paint being that thin you just have to be careful about anything blowing on it like a heat gun. When I used the dryer I was about 10" away and it still caused the paint to shift. Also what null said, mineral spirits is highly flameable.

What about a light stand? In the morning I put a light stand; that has two halogen lights on each side that put off some heat over the hood I'm painting, is that ok?
