Yes, that's what I am using. It laid pretty darn flat in some places. I'm not going to be doing full cars so maybe a little post spray work will be acceptable. At most I'll do a hood but more likely just small interior panels, small parts (like a spiltter for the front end) and black panles for airbrush art.

My first task will be to get the very most I can out of this gun and then determine the next step. So far I have made a massive improvement with Rays advice. I do need a new compressor though so maybe a small detail gun will be in the future. No worries, some more trial and error and feedback for you good people and I am confident my needs will be meet.
