    don't let it cure in direct sunlight, in the shade/heat is fine.

      I have never let them dry in the sun. But a realy cool trick that I learned form an old body guy is.
      After the paint has dryed for the required time, per manufacturer, I wet sand to get the orange peel out. I wash the part off and after I let it sit in direct sunlight. What this is does causes the clear to reflow and get a super shiny surface after. The continue with buffing and polishing to get that super shiny look

      Good Luck
