    I shoot all kinds of material with good results with the little gravity feed touch up brush from harbor freight. I have used it on stocks before with good results. About the only thing I do not use it for is clear coating. The spray pattern leaves a little too much orange peel for me. If you are looking to do some fine line air brush work then Iwata makes some good products.

    Did you guys thin the paint or not? The one gun I tried to coat didn't stick very well. It was blasted with glass beads and then cleaned with acetone. There are places where you can scrape it off with your fingernail..... dang it.

    To get the Dura Coat to stick requires thorough degreasing in addition to grit blasting w/ 120grit, not glass beading!
