It takes a while. Mine still smelled a little after I cut and buffed the portion which I've done so far. I'm pretty sure there were still some soft spots.
A good way to tell would be see if you can find any sticky spots, like with the sort of pressure you'd apply while leaning against the car.

20 years ago, a neighbor at the time told me that maaco told him to spray his freshly painted car (a red '82 GT just like the one I got right after he moved away) with a garden hose, and let water evaporate off of it. They said that was supposed to help the paint harden and dry.

We did the "spray water on it" thing back in high school on a green 54 Olds a buddy and I painted. We waited untill we thought it was dry, however............... ahhh Seemed like 50million water spots decided they wanted to live there. A year later when we junked the car for the engine and tranny the spots were still but the funny thing was they never affected the ability of the car to burn gas or rubber.

Then just put the top down and drive, you guys! That's what I've been doing since probably early June, and my car definitely still needs work...

I live in N. Texas & I hear ya' about the heat!!! Dang it's been hot. I tried using Krylon a few weeks ago & it powdered up just like yours did. I think I read that it 'atomizes' before it hits the metal. So your spraying a liquid that turns to a solid or 'powder' just before it hits the metal. Never had that happen before a few weeks ago. I have a question. How should I be mixing my rust. to MS in this heat? Mine keeps drying before it levels itself out & I'm getting bad roller marks & tiger stripes. I tried 77:33, 60:40 & 50:50. I jsut went & bought some Penetrol because it says it helps level & dry slower. If I should use the Penetrol then what should my R:MS:P ratio be? Thanks a ton!

Try 50% rusto, 25% MS and 25% penetrol. I recommend trying a few different ratios on a test panel until you find something that works in your hot weather. If you can, try painting early in the morning when coolest.

well i did not use any penetrol and i used 50/50 mix but i always used a tiny bit more ms then paint i would think this is a no no but in this heat it worked.../ the other trick to bet the heat is paint while its cooling no matter how hot it is it will be getting cooler 5am to 6 am then the heat starts i got up at 3;30 4 start prep and start painting as soon as i see faint blue in the sky but its still dark so im getting the coat on in about 45 min but this only works if it is getting back down in the 80,s at night //any time i got the paint over 87 i had problems i was trying to fix latter

For the emblems, you should be able to scrape the paint off with a razor blade or exacto.

Not sure about the mirrors - are they painted or just bare plastic?

Yep, you'll need a razor blade for the 5.0 badge. The mirror I would just remove and paint. Should be just one screw where the mirror adjuster is, and then three nuts under that, to remove it.
It doesn't have power mirrors does it?

Oh yeah, there's an allen screw acting as a set screw, securing the adjuster knob to the bezel. Bezel comes off to the inside, then you pull the mirror, cables and adjuster knob out from the outside.

I have a porter cable DA with variable speed from 1-6. I put mine on setting 5 to cut my paint. Not sure what rpm 5 is, but you need some speed to cut the paint effectively. Good luck and post some pics!
