I'm sorry, I meant to say they were the FIRST panels sanded thus they sat longer before the paint was applied. And yes as Henry stated wet sanding helps the ISO's kick even more and often the urethane primer will have a different recoat time if it is wet sanded than dry sanded. Being sorter if it's wet sanded allowing less time to get the top coat on.
