    I'd sand it down with 600 and flowcoat it,you're good to go after a day or two in most cases.

    I like to wait at least 2 days, preferably a week. Especially when patterns and flake are present. Start with 1000 on a block, then work your way up to 1500 and 2000.

    The runs can be blocked out with 600-800, just be very careful. Then follow with normal procedure.

    also on the original question, i do collision and we color sand after 24 hours. ive read on here for show/restoration/your car you can wait 3 months for the paint to full cure for best results.
