bedlined my wheels, so nervous!

this is what I feel my face looked like all morning!!! so, I washed the wheels, sanded them, taped them, and bedlined them. when I went to remove the tape I nicked one with my fingernail and it scratched off. I touched it up and now all look good. How long until until cured? I am so scared these will get ruined first time out on road. right now they look good. I used rustoleum bedliner. heres some pics. oh and to make matters worse, drizzled about 5hrs after I finished but all look good

I think you'll be fine, don't worry. I did my floorboard and it was still a little tacky until the next day. It seems to be tough as nails now.

ps I used the same stuff I believe.

kinda debating on doing a custom rocker panel with it was well as a custom mask (lots of stone chips in fender fronts and grille)
