How do the pros spray bulk contact cement?

I'm in the middle of doing my interior, but I'm having a hard time getting the contact cement to spray smoothly. I'm using Helmetin green 8130 (pic enclosed) which I've been told is the perfect glue to use. I've tried my siphon feed DeVilbiss JGA spray gun, my finishline gravity gun, and have even modified an old spray gun to pressurize the pot when spraying to try and get it to atomize better.
One of the automotive upholstery books I have mentions thinning the glue with lacquer thinner, but I'm afraid of screwing the glue up. If one of the pros out there could answer this, it would be appreciated.Dan
