The temp outside also has alot to do with how the paint cures. It would help to have the car inside somewhere, but you can also plug in a flood light/heat lamp while it is curing.
Another helpful hint: to get more pressure, and a finer mist out of the can, put them in *slightly hot* water first. This will build up pressure inside the can, and get you a finer coat.
The paint will need to cure for about a week before you can sand it down to get OP out of it. Start with 1000 grit wet, then 1500. Add your clear, let it set for a week, and do the same...but this time, finish up with 2000 grit wet, then polish.
