    No probs - unfortunately it'll have to be two at a time and then allow a bit of drying time before putting the wheels back on to do the other two. It's tempting to stick four axle stands under to save time, but very risky - big, big chance of car falling off them.

    yeah...thats y i asked..ive had cars up on stands many times..but its always been to do something on either the back or front...maybe i should park up in some ropey area...i'm sure the local riff would have it up on all corners with minimum of fuss lmao

    It ain't the weather, its if you have it level and steady bud, personally I'd wait for a hot day to do the cals, that way you casn spray and decal all in one day.
