bathroom with exhaust fan on.  I've heard people wait 30f days before
waxing car after paint job on car .

30 - 45 days, let the playfield air cure.

Put it next to your furnace....it will give you a minimal amount of
dry extra heat and lots of air circulation. And yes....30 days
minimum. The longer the better. Too much heat will make it crack or
craze as it dries. You have to let the solvents evaporate out of the
product before you can call it "cured". And as someone else mentioned
earlier....check Utube for specific instructions on buffing it out. I
saw your earlier post that you had already sanded it. I think that
was too early, but thats only my opinion. If you sanded it early like
that another trick is to shoot a light coat of pure lacquer thinner
(sort of lightly, but enough to wet the surface) over it after wet
sanding. It will cause the lacquer to flow into the fine scratches
from the wet sanding and make the buffing stage a bit easier.
Who knows...your wife might start to like the smell of lacquer in the
house instead of candles.

What is missing from this thread is the type of coating you used.
FWIW, I am in the coatings industry and sell chemicals to the paint
companies.

None of the answers are wrong. It depends what type of coating (and
therefore cure mechanism) you used. Waterbased automotive
product? ....cure time is longer as the solvent (yes...water.. and
water is a solvent) takes longer to evaporate.

If you are using two part epoxy type system the cure is chemical and
instant. You do NOT have to wait 30 days. Cure is not caused by Heat
(furnace etc) but by chemical reaction.

Share the product used and I can provide the recommended cure time.

Yeah, they always leave cars sit to cure for 30 days before driving...?
I'd say more like 3.

I would wait a week then reassemble.
A month (or longer) if you really want it to cure before putting it to
use.
