the paint took awhile as it needed to dry. so i'd say the whole process 3-4hrs? im impatient so i cheated and used a blow-dryer to dry the red paint quicker, but the end result of the paint quality doesn't come out as good as if you let it air-dry.

Looks great. The red emblem matches the taillights and goes with the cars color. Nice mod!
