Question for those who have painted their own calipers-

Hi guys- need some help please. In the next few weeks, I'm hoping to use the G2 Caliper paint system (paint brush method) to color my brake calipers red. The instructions say that after I finish putting 3 coats on, I must let them dry for 2 hrs, and then not even drive the car for 24 hrs. before driving the car. Is it necessary to not drive the car for 24 hrs before driving it?

Reason I ask is because I live in NYC, and I can't do the job at my parking garage, and instead must complete the job at a friend's house, but don't want to leave the car there 24hrs before I can drive off. Does it really take that long for the paint to cure?

Thanks in advance.
