If you don't have 'natural heat' where you live, you can bake the chassis (without electronics!) in the oven at low (under 200 F) heat for a few hours.
Timing is critical- do this when you are home alone for best WAF! Put on the range fan and open a window.

A few afternoons hanging on the clothes line outdoors seem to help the paint harden up as well.

All this is just to speed up the natural paint hardening, which can take a month or so.
