I think it will do fine. Play around with settings and shoot some practice pieces if you get a chance. I've painted a few cars with an old sharpe conventional, 1.7 mm siphon feed and it did okay, although not the best for todays high solids paints. One thing that I did run into a little bit of problems with is metallic control, but if you know how to crosscoat its not that difficult to even out with basecoat. I now have a pressure feed accuspray hvlp I use for base, and don't have to do much evening of metallic with that gun. And of course you will blowing a bit of paint in the air as overspray with a conventional gun.
