Zaino ZFX question can it dry overnight

Per the instructions when using Zaino with ZFX (NOT with Z-AIO) is it still OK to let it dry overnight...the instructions say let it dry 30 mintues...its 30 minutes later and its still smearing when I go to wipe it off...its super humid right now (and its almost mid-night) so can I leave it until morning then wipe it off?

I missed some spots on my ZFX job and it just wiped off the next day... Take a break and get it in the morning...

No negative effects to the finish that you saw?

Not at all... once it's dry it's dry. See if Moose is on and double check with him...

One more thing... I actually waited a couple of hours before I started buffing... it was super hot here and I was afraid it would just get baked on. Came off just fine and the finish was smooth as glass. I did 2 coats. Will probably do a couple more soon...

WoW... I can just imagine how slippery that car is now...

Pharmd and myself used the ZFX only method. I'll probably do a couple more coats next month.

How did it go Pharmd... let see some pics...

It's OK to leave it on overnight.

Humidity is a BIG factor in drying time. :( I've let coats sit on the SS overnight on many occassions - no worries.
