The great thing about all of these is they are rattle cans. It saves you about $600 without having to buy an air compressor and HLVP sprayers.

Any questions? Its a DUMB idea, it won't be a durable finish, it won't look good and you won't save any money. Go buy a cheap 20 - 30 gallon comp and a cheap non-hvlp sprayer.
Sorry to be so blunt, but this is a BAD idea.
Even the original poster in this thread broke down and bought a gun for his project after he saw spray bombs don't work!
