acrylic enamel question, need a little more shine

I just finished a work truck paint job with acrylic enamel. my question is this, is there any way to get the paint to shine a little more? I have not wet sanded or done anything to this paint job as it was finished last night. how long do I have to wait to do somthing to it, It seems cured?
Thanks
Kent

If mixed 8:1 and temp is 70 or above the whole time 12 -16 hours on acrylic you can wet-sand and buff, re shoot with itself or spray a urethane clear over it. so rule of thumb has always been over night to be safe.
