spray can for small areas or no?

Hi all,
guess I'm a glutton for ridicule , but here goes. I will be painting ,(at home), my panel truck a single stage satin, (matte), black. I'm thinking about painting the dash and doors (inside of course), and jambs a gloss black for the following reasons; 1)the contrast might look cool, 2)I may get tired of the satin exterior and want gloss later. My question is should I spray with my regular full size gun or 2), buy a mini gun for the interior or 3) is there a spray can (aerosol) that will actually look good and last. This is not a daily driver and will be kept in a garage, seeing around 5k miles/yr. Let the frenzy begin!

custon can

Some of the larger paint suppliers can custom fill spray cans with your paint. It is easier than cleaning your equipment.

Actually everybody in this city can, even the small stores that I go to, so I don't think you'll have a problem.

Another option is a Preval sprayer, this is a cross between a spraycan and a small gun. There is a glass jar for about 6oz of paint and a replaceable top that screws on the jar. The top is pressurized with a nozzle like a spray can and you use the sprayer just like a spray can. One spray head will last for about 2 jars of paint and you can buy additional heads. I used a preval unit to paint the doorjambs on my daily driveer back in 1990 and last month when i got rid of the car the jambs were holding up just fine.

For more information try www.preval.com.

Even my local Harbor Freight had Preval's and were a bit cheaper then the auto paint stores. Lowe's at one time had them but I believe discontinued.
