Nason Cure time help?

Hey guys, recently painted my mates 63 pontiac. Being his first ever project, he purchashed ice blue nason full-thane. Sprayed it on sunday, came up alright for a metallic, a little streaky. He came down and asked how long before he could polish it, informed him as its a urethane style metallic it can't be polished. So my question is, it will all be blocked back by this weekend, and he now wants to apply the same colour but in a nason basecoat with clearcoat overtop. How long does it take for tthis nason full-thane to cure before I can add a basecoat overtop without reactions? Only plan on 1-2 coats of the basecoat and will block back as much of the full-thane as possible without cutting through to primer to keep the paint as thin as possible. Local paint shop doesnt seem to know much as they have just switched to the nason range. Thanks

At 70 degrees or higher, you should be able to do what you want to the SS the next day.

Couple of ideas, no need to block most of it off, take some 600-800 wet and just smooth out and you should be ready for base.
I would do one of two things, sand and put car in sun for just half a day, will help a lot to pull some of the solvents out.

OR shoot the base and let the base set overnight to evacuate the solvents, it pulls from the SS and clear next morning.

Will it react? Odds are against it but anything can react and sometimes without a reason, so no guarantees.

so there is no need to let it sit a month before basecoat or anything. good to know., just the safest option was to respray as basecoat, so we could polish it and to avoid dust/bugs landing it the colour and it was very hard to spray not streaky... will respray next week,
