Well I ended up sticking with the multiple light coat method, 6 to be exact. I have the worst trouble with sagging and drips when ever I try to spray any thicker. By the time I was done spraying the paint was thick enough to mask the casting bumps on the flat surfaces. It seemed to turn out well so far but I won’t really know until tomorrow.

I know a week is the suggested curing time so I’m assuming that applies to reassembly and use, or just use? Also how long should I wait to unmask the machined surfaces?
