I am working on the project, am not a professional, but have used other brands in the past.

Thank you all for your passion!
there is not time limit ! you can wait years if you want . with 22 line if you let it sit for some weeks it will sand and buff better . you can sand it 24 to 48 hours after if you want than depends on that the temp is of the panel though . you want the panel temp to be 70 degrees or better to sand it 24 hours later if your not baking it . if you bake it at 160 for 30 minutes you can just take it out of the booth let it cool it room temp and then color sand and buff .
on a job like your you can do all your painting and when your finished you then can do your color sanding and buffing even if it months later .
the thing is don't sand it and let it sit sanded to long (more than 48 hours )
what happends id the sanding scratches close back up (not like it gets shiny again) but then it will be a PITA to buff the sand marks out . what you will get id a nice shine and it will have sanding marks you will see when you look at the panel on the flip . that is when your looking donw the side of the panel . the face is looking at the panel straight on the flip is at the side .

FWIW my Line22 got laid in August/September last year (nearly a whole year), and I haven't even looked at colour sanding yet! I'm told I'll be using a little more elbow grease, but that the result will still be great. At this rate the paint will be 2 years old before I get to sand and polish it!

So it looks great without all the sanding and polishing is what you are telling me.
Thats encouraging!

It comes off the gun nice. I imagine a pro in a good booth could set it up like glass... Not me I most definitely need to sand some imperfections, runs and bugs out...

you will find it is not that much harder to sand and buff when it's fully cured .
my red track loaner 944 i painted about 3 years ago in 22 line and this spring because no one balled it up yet i though i would give it a sand and buff . i think that was the longest i ever let a car go before it was buffed and the car sanded just fine and buffing was maybe just a little harder but nothing to get pissed about .
