It was pretty cold. I would say around 40-50 degrees. There were some guys working in the shop that turned the heat up when they were working so the top was exposed to some drastic temperature changes, especially because it was stored right under the heater. I bought pre-catalyzed lacquer from a local paint store. I think it was valspar. I thinned it with lacquer thinner about 25%. The reason I sprayed it so cold was because when I was spraying my sanding sealer, I was getting a lot of graininess. I read somewhere that it was caused by spraying when temperatures are too hot so I just turned the heater off and it solved the problem.
