So I got her painted yesterday and brought her home today. I am very pleased with the Sterling Paint. MY friend sprayed it with a good HVLP gun and there was virtually no overspray. He has an outdoor sort of paint booth that is enclosed on one side with very high ceilings and carpeted on the ground, and it came out great. He managed four coats on the sides with a quart of paint a quart of hardener and a quart of reducer. So I have another $250 worth of paint laying around now....Anyway. The Graystone covered very nicely on the third coat and then really looked nice after the fourth. It was hot as hell and fairly still but he laid it on about every 30 minutes and it worked out great. He had not worked with this before but really liked it and was amazed at how hard it was after only 14 hours. He used a standard 3m half mask with the pre-filter and organic cartridge and with the fans and mother nature moving enough air and the very low overspray, the LPU was not as noxious as some have said it can be. I know it is dangerous if not used correctly, but this seemed to be a good setup. Check it out. Also finished the KIWI on the decks. Great stuff,
