Wow. After watching that I am not sure whether my finished job would look like 120 grit sand paper or Niagara Falls. He obviously knows what he is doing but I don't think I will be trying to copy him. After watching it, I agree with Brian. He is feathering the trigger as he goes to control the amount of paint but still..... It would appear he would end up with dry over spray or so much paint on the panel it would run off in sheets. This is probably the difference between someone who paints a car every two years and someone who paints 2 a day.
