Painting temperature?

I have my car primed and ready for paint, and plan to paint it tomorrow. My question is the daytime high should be around 70 degrees but the low's at night will dip into the mid 40's. If i paint it during the day will the low nighttime temps affect the paint? Also the paint is John Deere Blitz Black. Thanks.

Your friend is one of those infrared thermometers..i want the metal to be 60 degrees plus before I paint so roll it out in the sun before you shoot it..

PLase let us know how it goes with the John Deer Blitz black. I was planning on using it once but opted to use PCL Flat Black instead.

The dew point should be at least 5 degrees below the temperature. Otherwise, there WILL be water on the substrate's surface.

Now THATS the kind of precise information I've always been looking for. Temps are always running crazy around here and I've wound up shooting in darn near freezing ( not by choice, snuck up on me )and it's come out great.... but its the moisture in the air that has more to do with it than the temp, Ive had other times teh temp has been in the supposed perfect range, but the stinking humidity threw a royal wrench in things. I'm pretty much limited to spring and fall I finally figured out until I get rich and can afford some contained shooting space with some climate control.
