The essence of 'spraying' paint is for looks....if you wanna spray, why not make it look 'great' even if you're only gonna use it...it will look better and give you a greater sense of pride in your work...Nope still won't work better...but, it will look better and be worth more when you do decide to sell it...IMHO

Going down the list of threads under this category, I see a LOT of talk of using spray cans. So you're saying ALL of those guys are doing it wrong simply because they aren't trying to use a spray gun. Don't deny it, that's EXACTLY what is being said.
Perfection is all well and good. Then there is the real world.
I see it as two choices, do what you can do, and do it well, or try to do something you can't do, and have a crappy outcome. I wonder which would give the best results, the most often, in the real world.
If you have the ways and means to mess around with 15 coats of paint, with hours of prep and clean up time, by all means, DO SO!
But DO NOT diss those without those resources.
In my original post, I stated, "Stay within your capabilities." I fail to see where that is wrong. If that's a spray can, fine, if it's $10,000 of paint booth and equipment, fine. But DO NOT DISS me for not living up to the money and time YOU CAN AFFORD to spend on painting.

When I saw this post I never intended for this to take the route it went. I most inaccurately thought it was 'open game' for any spray painting advice...so I took it that way and the thread quickly twisted and turned on me...so in the end it ended up being not spray painting with a gun...but spray painting with a can that he was specifically after...no where did it claim on a budget, or low cost...or quickie...just spray painting advice...definitely NOT what he wanted...Oh well next time I'll be a little more 'cautious' and reserve my opinion till later in the thread when this type of q is asked...
