advice needed from bodywork Sprayers/painters

had a quote from a bodyshop to get my abarth rear bumper sprayed for 80 which seems pretty good to me. Dropped it off about 3pm today and he rekons i can pick it up tomorrow morning, which seems abit soon to me?

from previous experience using rattle cans i know that sometimes painting can take days, even weeks when applying lacquer. which is why i was abit suspicious when he said i could pick it up tomorrow.

anyway..... what i wanted to know is how is the paint applied in a bodyshop and is it possible for the paint to cure in such a short time?

If its already Sprayed once - ie come off another car

All he'll do is just respray your colour - bake - Lacquer - Bake done

Bumper is small - wont take long todo - not like doing a whole car tbh
