How long does auto paint take to dry?

Question by john moore: How long does auto paint take to dry?
My truck is undergoing body work. They’ve finished all the work and all that is left is the paint. Its a small area, not a whole side. Just the 3rd door and left side tailgate. They started thursday morning and I NEED my truck by friday afternoon. Will they let me take it?

Paint drys quite quickly, as it has hardeners to speed the process up. It generally is set up enough after a few hours time. It should be noted that the clear coat will not be fully cured for at least a month, so avoid doing any heavy washing of the repair area is recommended. Do remember rushing a paint job isn’t a good idea, give the painter the time he needs to do the job right for you.
