Paint is applied as soon as the body is assembled. It is "baked" on and "touched" by many assemblers along the line.
I am pretty certain that all US automotive paint is "water" based.

That should not be necessary on modern vehicles. 3Ms instructions only refer to freshly re-painted vehicles - no mention of OEM paint jobs.
