    Toronto, Canada, eh.
    It should be depending on the humidity(read instructions) Also you will want to cover the por15 painted surface with an extra coat or 2 of your favourite color of rust paint. Por15 is UV sensitive and will turn an off colour when exposed to sunlight.

    <font color=blue>Yeah, thats what the guy told me when I went to the main office a few weeks ago to get it. I got some high-gloss Rustoleum to cover it with when I'm done. It'll be painted in a heated shop and its pretty dry out now

    I'd say yeah it will be dry enough. Drying overnight should be fine.

    Overnight should be fine with POR. That stuff dries fast... and since your in a heated garage weather won't be a big factor.
