    Default tape time on basecoat?

    Anyone recall what the tape time is on PPG DBC basecoat? I have to shoot a complete car tomorrow morning, that has a two color bumper cover.

    Thanks, Carl

    Isn't it in the P-Sheet (Time to Tape)?

    Depending on how hot it is in your booth, I usually crank up the heat to 85 or so....and wait 1 to 1.5 hours before masking....and then I remove the masking as quick as I can once the second color is shot.

    Default if one of the colors is black

    i'd wait an additional 15 minutes. cotton pickin' blacks have alot of resin that [to me] seem to make them easier to tape track.
