I had some rust creep out from under some belt trim and I repainted the back quarter of my 46. What I need to know is how long do I wait before wet sanding and buffing it out to a smooth brilliant shine?

What type of paint? And what is the temperature where you are?

Did you mix a hardener in it?

I think you should be able to go ahead and wet sand it and buff it.
