The surface and drying temp has alot to do with it too. If you spray the paint below 65 degrees it will most likely cloud up on you. Get a small space heater if the storage garagagagage has electrical oulet. turn it on let it warm up around the area and when you go to paint shut off the heater, spray, let the fumes dissapate and turn the heater back on for a bit untill its dry. If thats not an option then more than likely if the temps below 60 the paint will cloud no matter how much you warm the can. Also warming the can and paint inside with running warm water works pretty good on those chilly spring days were than can has been in storage and its cold. Drying temp is the deciding factor though. Around here you can't spray anything after 65 because dew point is usually right below as well as the clouding paint <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />
