I  know this is an old post, but I just remembered I forgot to respond.  

I skimmed your message and before I read it clearly, I thought you had put the 
steel rod on the dash in order to paint it!   I was thinking why the heck would 
he put it on the dash to paint it! Won't that get paint all over the dash.  
Admittedly, it was a dumb thought, but it was my first thought when I read it.  
Glad you didn't do that.

Subject: [MBZ] Curing paint on small painted objects

I recently painted a steel rod for a project I'm working on with several coats 
of black rattle-can spray paing over 3 or 4 days. A few days later, I found the 
paint hadn't really hardened, so I thought of heating the piece up with a hair 
dryer/heat gun. That didn't work too well and I was concerned about getting the 
paint too hot in the spot in front of the heat gun.

I solved the problem by putting the piece on the dark blue dashboard of our '82 
240D/3.0 with the front window facing south. That worked like a champ. It 
heated up the rod uniformly until it was almost too hot to hang onto. The paint 
is good and hard now.
