Automotive water base paint questions

I would be interesting in hearing from others who have tried or are shooting with water base paint and using a turbine system for shooting the paint.

Is it a lot harder to shoot?

Is orange peel a bigger problem or a smaller problem.

I was thinking of trying it and using a 3 stage turbine system to cut down on the over spray and the amount of paint used.

Any pro's and con's or any comments would be a great help.

I know there are shops using this method and now that PPG and others are offering water base paint I thought it just might be time to try and it and experiment a little with the gun and settings.

I also like the idea of the whole turbine system being portable and able to simply take it on the road if need be to make a small repair.

Thanks for your help. Jimbo
