There should be dry time on the can, anything shorter and you could cause a sticking problem.

I would also use two very thin coats in the crack area to make sure they dry completely...To tell you the truth unless you are changing the color of the door, the paint in there should still look good. Its not usually subjected to the same weathering and sun fade as the exterior of the panels and may be in good shape still.

I paint garage doors all the time with a quality exterior paint. Clean, scuff and paint, as you raise the door you will get into the cracks and the edge sealed area.
