I was competeing at the "Deutsche Marque Concours" in Virginia about 2 wks. ago, and some kind visitor "keyed " the passengers door. I've had the door repainted, but now the reeks of paint fumes. Any ideas on how to get rid of the smell?

Stand upwind. You wont want to wax the paint for about a month to 6 weeks either. Let the paint cure 100% before putting any wax on it. Wash it all you like but avoid putting anything on it (polish, wax, etc) for awhile. The bodyshop should of baked the paint on pretty well. The smell will be a good indicator of curing. When it stops smelling, the paint is cured. (or your high but that is another issue) j/k Just drive with the windows open for a couple weeks. Sorry I can't be the bearer of better news...

Your right, it's not good news, but I guess I'll have to live with it. As far as getting high is concerned, is that why painters always have a smile on their faces? Thanx.
