Use a blow drier to speed it up.

If you don't seal it with anything, you could run waterbased paints as soon as they are dry. Use a hairdryer on low for 30 mins and that's as dry as waterbased paint is gonna get.

If you really want it fully cured, and you live in a sunny/warm state, put the shell in your car and leave it in the full sun with windows up. It should get 140 degrees or so in there, and after a day of that, it's DRY.

Even with semi-gloss enamel for a backer/seal coat, I give it two or three days to be fully cured. With enamels, if you can still smell solvents, it's not fully cured.
Got Paint? Got MicroHoles? Got custom masks?
