SEM Hot Rod Black


New Member
I just sprayed my '69 Mustang hood with SEM Hot Rod black and was wondering what the usual time is before I can pull the template without pulling paint? The poop sheet says to let air dry for 16 hours or 30 minutes if I had an oven, which I don't. The paint sprayed nice, leveled out better than expected. Hopefully, this is the last painting on this car.

I normally pull tape as soon as possible. It usually leaves a cleaner edge and lessens the chance of adhesive transfer. Once it is tacked off good, pull the template straight back against itself. 16 hours seems like a long time to me, but may work fine. I just never wait that long.
