you might want to reconsider.  I know that after a fresh paint job,
anything that sits on the paint and rubs against it is not exactly a great
thing... I'm not sure the exact time to cure 100%, but you may want to
talk to your body-shop man.  Considering that you are invensting big $$$
to get the pearlescent hue, don't ruin it with a 30-hour stint of a bra
rubbing against that fresh paint while you are on the road...

As always, I open this to other, more paint-savvy q-listers...
