    Default Caliper paint drying time

    I might be painting my calipers at the weekend but am worried now the weather is getting cold that they wont dry in time.

    How long should it be left to dry before driving the car?

    I may just use hammerite instead of propper caliper paint as it cheaper

    This time of year it will take longer unless you can get the car in a garage with some heating.
