Hello

I have desided to not polish my fork lowers and crown , as i can't be bothered to polish them all the time.
So i'm painting the lower white and the crowns black.
My question is when you prime them with a few light coats , how long do you leave inbetween coats to dry , then do you need to wet sand the primer with fine wet n dry?
Then the same apply's to the plasticote gloss white i'm using , i will give it a load of light coats , but how long will it need to dry , and were to leave them when drying?
Will an airing cupboard be ok as it is very warm in there.

Any advice please

cheers

Jason

it depends hugely on conditions but primer dries very fast. 30 mins between coats. rub down before colour.

plasticote isnt the best spray to be honest. not sure on times for that but it will say on the can
