Bill, I know that. I'm just surprised that you actually had the gall to say John'* or your'* out of a spray can be better.

Ya that'* more my style. It'* got a 9 1/2" pattern which is much better than a spray can.

I do have to admit that a spray can is not that bad. I know Bill is pretty good at it and that is all I have ever used.

Believe that Bill. My ram air headlight he painted looks so good you would swear it wasn't painted but is black ivory. Better than the black trim around the windows.

I'm a rattle-can master. My helmet, slick rims, and a few other projects came out pretty good. But now I'm debating whether to rattle-can my hood (huge cost-savings, and I know I can make it good), or buy a gun. Even the paint is more expensive if I gun it.

Decisions, decisions.

YOU should. It takes about half a day. Anyone can, and several have.
