2 days will do it

of course I wouldnt sit there and roll the window up and down on day 3. but it probably wouldnt do anything to it anyway.

might need 3days with the cold temps right now.

I rolled my windows down the next morning. It was no problem at all. It was mid 80's all the first day though.

your windows will roll down when you gotta go home. but dont do it more than needed; it takes a while to fully cure.
