PPG has reducers good down to 55 degrees, so they claim. Like Glennster I like my cutoff point at 65.

me personally, i would not attempt it at that temperature. 65 degree minimum. you will need to have a uniform solvent evaporation rate so you can get a decent flash time between coats. your final wet coat is going to run at that temperature.

I have painted in 50 degree air, if the vehicle is nice and warm in the sun and the paint has been inside and warm. I would use as fast of reducer as possible and a hardener.

Put on a light coat, get is sticky then apply more.
