How long should it dry

Hi guys I bought a 2005 mustang. I want to make it look like the prototype roush. On the prototype the lexan was removed from the headlight and the plastic bezel was painted. I was wondering how long should I let the bezels dry before I seal every thing back together. Some one said I should wait 2 weeks to make sure the solvent is all dried up

thanks guys

If they are done in a baking booth then most of the solvents will be gone by the time you get them back. Most headlamps are not totally airtight, they will usually have a small vent somewhere, so I don't think you will have a problem.
