I just under coated and assumed (made an ass out of me I know) washed the undercarriage but didn't thoroughly dry, it was cold, humid, and very thick coats, but plasti-dip (another rubberized spray paint) dries in those conditions just fine, I have work tomorrow and NEED the car drive able, the paint is very tacky how do I dry it to suffice driving condition?

Whats worse is you trapped water between the undercoating and the metal....that won't dry out.

My question at this time is did you undercoat first and then washed the undercarriage ?

If you undercoated first . Don't worry about IT and move on to your next project ..

IF you washed the undercariage first and then applied the undercoat well IT just may peal off here and there and I still would not worry about IT ..

WHat did you use as a base undercoating if I may ask ?

Was always undercoating, in particular when wheel wells were made out of steel. Would only do this on a very hot summer day.

Chose your day wisely, my son.

Not really up to date again, undercoating use to be solvent based, but seeing more and more water based stuff on the shelves today. Is your undercoating water based?

Only water based paints are used on the Cruze.

Yet another new problem with an asphalt driveway, use to be able to buy solvent based sealant that lasted for years, can't even get a year's use out of this water based crap. More work, more money.

Undercoating should never dry. Only the bad stuff dries. A proper undercoating just firms up but can still be wiped off with your finger.
