Primer Activator temp/speed

Hi, I'm ready to shoot high build primer in the garage and selected the activator based on the temps during the Fall here in MN. I selected the fast activator which says it's used for the temp range: 60-75 degrees. Unfortunately, I didn't do my homework and read the tech sheet first or read about it here on the forum. I have a feeling that I should have chosen the medium. I'm planning on a mostly sunny 65 degree day. Will this activator work for me or do I need to get a medium activator? Thanks, Grayle

Make sure your metal is in the 60-65 degree range..the air temp may be fine but the metal may still may be cold..

Sounds good! I'll check the panel temp with a laser thermometer to make sure it's in the right range! Thanks!
